The Town is seeking interested and qualified individuals to serve on the Sudbury Historical Commission.

The Sudbury Historical Commission was established in 1968 and acts under Section 8D of Chapter 40 of the General Laws of the Commonwealth for the preservation, protection and development of the historical or archaeological assets of the Town. The Commission has jurisdiction over all aspects of historic buildings and structures, 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 also administers the Demolition Delay Bylaw. It is headquartered at the Hosmer House on the corner of Concord Road and Old Sudbury Road.

The Historical Commission is made up of 7 members, with special interest and knowledge of historical preservation, who are appointed by the Town Manager, subject to the approval of the Board of Selectmen. Members are expected to attend monthly meetings, to actively participate in the matters and projects of the Commission.

Applications will be accepted until filled by downloading the Volunteer Application Form from the Town’s website.

Please feel free to contact Jody Kablack, KablackJ@sudbury.ma.us, at the Planning and Community Development Department with any questions.
