Arcadia Publishing - Sudbury

Sudbury, located 20 miles west of Boston, was incorporated in 1639. It has a rich, unique history as one of the first colonial settlements. In 1676, it was the site of one of the major battles of the Indian War, called King Philip's War. In 1775, Sudbury sent more than 350 men to Concord to stand up for liberty against the British. Once known as the "carnation capital," Sudbury still has two of the largest wholesale greenhouses in the state. Historic landmarks, including Longfellow's Wayside Inn­—made famous under the ownership of Henry Ford from 1923 to 1945—draw thousands of tourists every year. The town attracts residents because of its natural beauty, stone walls, scenic roads, and history. Sudbury remained a small agricultural town until the 1950s and has become a desirable suburban town known for its excellent schools, attractive homes, and community spirit.
