Town Records dating back to 1759 stored in a locked vault in the basement of Town Hall
Soon enough anyone will be able to access Annual Town Reports back to 1861 and Town Meeting records to 1759--the founding of our fair town. Our Information Technology Department has scanned all the old records stored in a walk in Mosler Safe in the basement of Town Hall and will soon upload them to the town website.
Now that ought to increase traffic.
