Town Reports hold a wealth of information about a town's history. In reports you can find expenditures, the value of the Grand List, Poor or Work Farm expenses, school superintendent reports, misbehaviors and misdemeanors, and much more.
Below you will find searchable, full-text copies of Northfield's Town Reports, in the standard PDF format. After checking with the Northfield Town Clerk's Office, it appears that 1859 was the first published report. Earlier reports were handwritten and are not suitable for scanning.
We recommend that you download and save reports to your computer and use Adobe Reader to open. The Adobe Reader is free. Go to https://acrobat.adobe.com/us/en/products/pdf-reader.html to download.
