The Sudbury Historical Commission, established by a special town meeting vote in 1968, has jurisdiction over all aspects of historic buildings, and properties currently owned by the town, or any such facilities that might be acquired. Currently these include the Hosmer House and Loring Parsonage, along with the Haynes Garrison site on Water Row, Revolutionary War Training Field on Old County Road and the Revolutionary War Cemetery in the center of town. The commission manages building use and occupancy and maintenance, and furnishings to the above facilities also served as advocate for other historic groups and coordinates related programs. It is headquartered at Hosmer House which was given to the town by Miss Florence Hosmer to honor her father. The building remains exclusively as a memorial to the Hosmer Family and houses a collection of their memorabilia, plus 497 of Miss Hosmer's paintings.
