Sudbury is a town in Middlesex County, population 17,659 (as of 2010). The town was incorporated in 1639, with the original boundaries including what is now Wayland. Wayland split from Sudbury in 1780.
One of Sudbury's historic landmarks, the Wayside Inn claims to be the country's oldest operating inn, built and run by the Howe family for many generations. In August 1925, a Sudbury farm was the scene of a riot between local members of the Ku Klux Klan and Irish-American youths from the area. Five people were wounded by gunshots, and the State Police arrested over 100 Klansmen. Massachusetts officials cracked down on the group's meetings thereafter, and the area Klan died out.
Residentially, Sudbury's 1-acre zoning bylaws helped the town maintain a more rural character through the 1970s and 1980s, when developments of single-family Colonials and large Capes
established it as an affluent location. Commercial growth was restricted to the town's main
thoroughfare, US Route 20, and significant tracts of open space — including much wetland – were
preserved in the northern half of town. As subdivisions of large homes continued to be
constructed well into the 1990s, Sudbury became one of the wealthiest towns in Massachusetts.
Contrary to local legend, the town's zip code of 01776 was not specially assigned in recognition of the town's historical connections to the Revolutionary War, according to the Sudbury Historical Society. Sudbury is bordered by Wayland on the east; Framingham on the south; Hudson, Maynard, Marlborough and Stow on the west; Concord on the northeast; and Acton on the north.
Sudbury students in kindergarten through eighth grade attend Sudbury Public Schools, while high school students attend schools in the Lincoln-Sudbury Regional School District, which was
established in 1954, integrating the former Sudbury High School with that of the nearby town of Lincoln, Massachusetts.
