Saugus Digital Documents are Accessible on the Internet Archive

The Internet Archive is an online collection of internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form. The Archive preserves the originals while making them available at the click of a mouse.

There are some fascinating records to be found. To step back in history, try a search of the "Records of Ye Towne Meetings of Lyn 1771" for "British".

High School Yearbooks, Annual Reports, Lists of Persons and other Town Documents are also available.

Most of the Middle School Yearbooks are now online at the Archive!

The project was Federally funded through the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners. Scanning was done by the Digital Services Department of the Boston Public Library. All documents will eventually reside on the Digital Commonwealth.
