Join the SHS and Curran Press for an author’s reading of the children’s book Goodbye Little Dude, by Rebecca Trotsky and Marie Smyth. A paint craft sponsored by Brush & Easel will follow each reading. Goodbye Little Dude was written in memory of Jonathan Smyth, who lived in Sudbury and attended Haynes Elementary School. Hear this beautiful story about a very special local boy, his rescued turtle, Little Dude, and a community coming together to create this book for Jonathan. To reserve tickets for a book reading session, the additional turtle craft, or to simply purchase a signed hardcover book package, visit

Proceeds from this fundraiser will support pediatric cancer research and the Sudbury Historical Society. $40 per family (includes one signed book package), $10 per child for the paint craft, and $25 to purchase the book package itself. Additional books can be purchased the day of the event.

Construction of the Sudbury History Center is Underway!

The Loring Parsonage circa 1890The Loring Parsonage circa 1890Etching by J. S. Conant, from Alfred S. Hudson, History of Sudbury, 1889

The Sudbury Historical Society is in the midst of its most ambitious project to date, creating the Sudbury History Center & Museum at the circa 1730 Loring Parsonage in the Town Center.

Stabilization of the existing building is now complete (you may have noticed the some of the building's post and beam frame exposed while it was being stabilized). Next we'll be reconstructing the interior of the building and expanding the ell on the east side of the building. After that we can move in!
