A medium sized town located in Middlesex county, the town of Sudbury has approximately 17,660 residents living within its 24.6 square mile area. Sudbury was settled early in colonial history, in the year 1639, and was very involved in the Revolutionary War. Sudbury remained a quiet rural town until rapid growth in the 1970s as Sudbury became a bedroom community for commuters to Boston and the surrounding high tech belt. Houses constructed in Sudbury during this time were mostly large colonials and capes, spread out thanks to 1 acre zoning bylaws that helped preserve the town’s quiet character. Sudbury is known for its high rated schools.
