Welcome to THE place for the history of North Reading, Massachusetts. I will be posting background, stories, tidbits and all things historical as they relate to this area.

The North Reading Historical Commission has been in existence since 1972. At that time Town Meeting voted to establish the commission under Chapter 40 of the Mass. General Laws.
This board is appointed by the Board of Selectmen. It is a branch of the town government with the responsibility to identify, preserve and protect the historical resources of the town.

Barbara Jagla, Secretary
North Reading Historical Commission
