Free tours take place at 10 am & noon on Thursday, July 4, 2024.


In conjunction with Sudbury’s 4th of July parade, First Parish is offering FREE guided tours of the historic Meetinghouse, in Sudbury Town Center.

You have driven by the big white church on the hill in Sudbury Center many times, but do you know how important a part it played in the town’s history? On July 4, take a tour of the First Parish of Sudbury and learn all about it—inside and out. See the organ and peer up into the steeple. Get a chance to ring the bell! Find out who paid to build it and why. Join us for one of two tours. We meet at the parking lot at 10 am and 12 pm.
