Members of the Southborough Historical Society have been hard at work over the past year. They’ve done a remarkable job cleaning up and organizing the Historical Museum with hopes to re-open in the fall.
But you don’t need to wait for that to take advantage of the work they’ve done. Along the way, many of the Towns old documents and history have been uploaded as online resources.
This month, the society shared an update on those efforts with its “Friends”:
Thanks to your financial support over the last year, we have been able to make many strides in bringing materials previously locked away in the archives online for public viewing. Here are just some of the most recent offerings:
A Slide Tour of the Old Burial Ground

Of course, we rely on you to help us make this happen. We have a number of volunteer positions open at the Society, and are always in need of ongoing financial support, so please keep those donations coming!
Other resources include scanned images of our Town’s copy of the Declaration of Independence, historical maps, and posts summarizing significant chapters in Southborough history. Check out the Historical Society’s website here.
