Sherburne’s Historic Documents

The Sherburne Historian’s Office has many historic documents located at the log cabin at the historic park. There are more documents held at the town clerks office and at the Sherburne Public Library. While the Historian’s Office does hold most of the documents, the Town Clerk is the custodian of the Town records. Please feel free to stop by to see us, or make an appointment to access our records for historical research of the Town of Sherburne.
