Voices of Sudbury Podcast

Coming Spring of 2022! The Sudbury Historical Society is starting a new Podcast, Voices of Sudbury!

The podcast will focus on conversations between friends, family, and new acquaintances all sharing about their time in Sudbury. We will 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 will reflect on how the town has changed, and a LS senior will share their feelings about leaving their hometown for College next year. Former residents will reflect on why they still hold Sudbury close in their memory.

2022 Annual Appeal

As 2022 begins, we wanted to take a moment to thank our supporters for their dedication to the Sudbury Historical Society year in and out. Thanks to the community support, we have been able to fully renovate the historic Loring Parsonage into the Sudbury History Center and Museum! Three museum galleries, archival storage spaces, offices with research areas and our 01776 Gift Shop opened to the public this past July. Since last summer, the enthusiasm of museum guests has been so wonderful and rewarding to see. If you have not yet visited the galleries and gift shop, make time to do so. We think you will leave most impressed!

Mid-December we embarked on our 2021-2022 annual appeal. Our goal is to raise $20,000 during this appeal cycle. Would you be willing to make a special contribution to the Sudbury Historical Society this winter?

The SHS annual appeal funds a variety of expenses, including collections management, staff training and salaries, program expenses and exhibit design. With your support, we can continue to impact our community in a lasting way. Please join us by making your tax-deductible gift on our online donation page located on the homepage of our website or by sending a check to the Sudbury Historical Society; 288 Old Sudbury Road, Sudbury, MA 01776.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, we appreciate your membership and consideration of a gift to the 2021-2022 Annual Appeal!

This November and December we added many holiday themed items to our ever-growing offerings. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and emails for listings of these new and exciting products.
