Be a Part of History: 
Help Hopkinton Celebrate its 250th Anniversary

Project Snapshot is a joint effort of the Hopkinton Historical Society and the Hopkinton Town Library to take a giant "snapshot" of our town in 2015.  We are trying to gather as many family histories and photos from our town’s 5,500+ citizens as possible.   Take the online survey and take a few minutes to answer the questions and submit your photos.  Or, click on the PDF version to print out and complete the survey.  Attach additional pages if needed. Check out the photos submitted so far!

All this (and more) is available at the new Hopkinton Historical Society's website
