Historical Properties in North Reading


Two surveys were done. In 1978 (Survey I) and again in 2001–2002 (Survey II) performed by the North Reading Historical Commission.


The scanned copies contained here on the North Reading Historical & Antiquarian Society’s webpage are owned by the NR Historical Commission and the Historical Society is putting them online as a public service.


Note1:  Paper copies of the two surveys can be found in two 3-ring binders at the Flint Memorial Library.
Note 2: A listing of the properties is on the town website (in spreadsheet format), but it does not have all the specifics about each property on the inventory. The site link is below.
