Coronavirus Pandemic: A Photographic Portrait of Southborough

The COVID-19 Pandemic has affected each of us in different ways and we are all eyewitnesses to this important moment in our history. To preserve this snapshot in time, The Southborough Historical Society is collecting photographs that demonstrate the impact of coronavirus and COVID-19 on our community.

The goal is to preserve images of our daily lives during this crisis and to provide future historians, researchers and students with information on life in our community during this pandemic and how it affected our daily lives.

And, we need everyone’s help. SHS is seeking photographs that demonstrate the impact of coronavirus and COVID-19 on Southborough and its residents.

It is a time when face masks, closed business, and working from home has become our new normal. For many of us, this may be the most historical moment of our lives and we need to preserve and archive this for posterity. By recording how the virus has changed our daily life, we will ensure the stories are available to provide valuable insight for future generations. Each contribution will help ensure evidence of this time for future research, reference and exhibits.

Please provide as many photographs as you feel are important. If you would prefer to send images directly through email, or have any questions, concerns, or thoughts about the project,  please send an email to
