 Norfolk County

Created on March 26, 1793.
Most of the towns were originally part of Suffolk County, Massachusetts.
The county is the birthplace of four Presidents of the United States (John Adams, John Quincy Adams, John F. Kennedy, and George H.W. Bush), resulting in the nickname "County of Presidents."
The county was named after the English county of the same name with the meaning "northern folk".
 Its county seat is Dedham.
