The Common District encompasses the main civic center of Wakefield, Massachusetts. It is centered on the historic town common, just south of Lake Quannapowitt, which was laid in 1644, when it became the heart of Old Reading. The area was separated from Reading as South Reading in 1818, and renamed Wakefield in 1868.
The 25 acre district includes the buildings that line the common on Common Street and Main Street, which include the town hall, public library, YMCA, and several churches. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.
