Sudbury Archives
"The Sudbury Archives Project began in November, 1991 as an effort to create a thorough index and database of the large collection of pre-1850 documents within the town of Sudbury, Massachusetts. The database includes the extensive records of the Town Clerk's Office in Sudbury, unique for its unbroken series of Town Meeting Records from 1639 to the present day, in addition to documents from the archival collections of the Goodnow Library, Longfellow's Wayside Inn, the Sudbury Historical Society, and the Wayland Historical Society."

"Currently, the database includes approximately 15,000 records dating from 1639 to 1850. Each record is searchable by title, date, subject, personal name, location of original, document category and record number, and many include editorial or historical annotations. Many records also contain scanned images or transcriptions of the original documents."

The Goodnow Library has a room devoted to local history. More info: Local History Resource Page

The Sudbury Historical Society has a great Links & Resources page.

Many fascinating documents can be found on the site of the Historical Commission tasked with the preservation, protection and development of the historical or archaeological assets of the Town and the Historic Districts Commission, with the mission to preserve and protect buildings, places and other areas, especially, the four historic districts in Sudbury.
