Information on the town's Historic Buildings and Landscapes
The Hadley Historical Commission is the municipal body responsible for community-wide historic preservation planning. The HHC maintains an inventory of the town's historic buildings and landscapes, assists the Planning Board with design review, and undertakes projects that promote the appreciation of the town's historic resources. The Commission also helps preserve the town's historic records, though queries concerning these materials should be directed first to the Town Clerk.
