Construction of the Sudbury History Center is Underway!

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!
