The Ames Schoolhouse is a historic school building at 450 Washington Street in Dedham, Massachusetts. The 2-1/2 story brick Colonial Revival structure was built in 1897. It was named in honor of American Revolution-era politician Fisher Ames.[2] At the 2014 Spring Annual Town Meeting, the Town of Dedham voted to repurchase the building for $5.85 million and renovate it to be used as a Town Hall and Senior Center.[3]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
