This Google map overlay allows the user to create a self-guided walking tour of the town of Boxford and its buildings through the photograph collection of the Boxford Historic Document Center. Step back in time as you discover the history of your neighborhood and learn how Boxford has changed and remained the same over the years.
This project was made possible by a generous grant from the Boxford Cultural Council.
With just a few exceptions, the majority of images used on this map are available as prints on our online store.
