About the Society

The Sudbury Historical Society is dedicated to bringing the rich history of the Sudbury Plantation into the lives and activities of the people of Sudbury. The Society was founded in 1956 by history-minded citizens of Sudbury. In 1970, it absorbed the Goodman Society (founded in 1890) its predecessor Historical and Improvement Society. Since 1998, thanks to the generosity of the town's selectman, the Society has been headquartered in the Second Floor of the Sudbury Town Hall.

What we do:

  • Educate and interest the citizens of Sudbury in a finer public spirit, through understanding of the traditions and history of the town.
  • Collect, study and conserve artifacts and records relating to the history of Sudbury and its people.

  • Provide age appropriate educational materials, research and tours related to the town's history for the town's children and students.
