The Great Seal of the Town of Saugus, Massachusetts

The Saugus Historical Commission, established under Section 8d of Chapter 40 of the Massachusetts General Laws, is the official Town body charged with the identification of properties and sites in the Town of historical significance and is the principal advisor to the Town on matters relating to historic preservation.

We are often confused with the Saugus Historical Society, a private, non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of local history through collecting and exhibiting artifacts on local history, publishing booklets on historical topics, and holding public programs on historical themes.

The Commission consists of seven members appointed to three-year terms by the Town Manager subject to the approval of the Board of Selectmen. The current members are:

  • Stephen Carlson, Chairman
  • Marilyn Carlson, Vice Chairman
  • Steven Rich, Secretary
  • Darren Brown
  • Raymond Lawrence
  • Robert Sacco

The Commission holds a regular meeting, usually on the third Tuesday of each month, at 6:30 p.m. at 25 Main Street. Any changes or special meetings will be posted in the Town Hall, and all meetings will typically be posted on the Online Saugus Community Calendar.
