Voices of Sudbury Podcast

Listen to our new podcasts, and join us as a guest on a future episode!

The podcast focuses on conversations between friends, family, and new acquaintances all sharing about their time in Sudbury. We feature a wide variety of participants, who have interesting and meaningful stories to share about life in the town we all love. A lifelong resident reflects on how the town has changed, and a LS senior will share their feelings about leaving their hometown for College next year. Former residents reflects on why they still hold Sudbury close in their memory.

Pop-Up ExhibitFrom The Archives

The "From the Archives" exhibit provides a behind-the-scenes look into the archives of the Sudbury Historical Society and its important collections. A sampling of material from the collections are featured, including Colonial-era documents, nineteenth-century art, and modern-day records. Each of the objects are shown along with their archival housing, demonstrating how the Sudbury Historical Society preserves and cares for the history of Sudbury.

The exhibit also showcases three projects created as part of the Spring 2023 archives internships through Simmons University at the Sudbury Historical Society, supervised by our archivist, Francesco Buccella. Interns created displays related to the following collections: the McCann Family, a nineteenth-century Sudbury family that immigrated from Ireland (by Benjamin Kaplan); the Perkins Family, including veterans of World War II and the Vietnam War (by Kathryn Walsh); and the Sudbury Legion, containing records of Sudbury servicemen during World War II (by Heather Walker).
