Discover Sharon's history! We are proud to be the Town of Sharon's repository for materials by and about Deborah Sampson. In 2014, we began digitizing our historical collection to provide off-site access to documents and photos relating to Sharon. Thanks to funding provided by the Digital Commonwealth, we will be able to continue expanding this resource over the next years.
