We have wonderful resources for historians and genealogists at the Taft Public Library in Mendon, Massachusetts. The Lorna Rhodes Genealogy Room includes:

  • Binders with information from Mendon’s cemeteries.
  • The history of Mendon and histories of many other Massachusetts towns.
  • Vital statistics for most Massachusetts towns dating back to the early 1800s.
  • Genealogies of Mendon families along with the bound histories of early settlers. (Because Mendon was the ‘mother town’, families from Blackstone, Grafton, Hopedale, Milford, Millville, Northbridge, Upton, and Uxbridge may have roots here.)

Those visiting our library to research the archives are reminded to bring notebooks and a digital camera.
