Villages and hamlets in Braintree include: Braintree, Braintree Center, East Braintree, Snowsville, West Braintree, and Peth.
It should be noted that Town Clerks as a rule no longer will perform research but will assist researchers when they visit the town offices. I found the Assistant Town Clerk, Mary Stephen, to be very helpful and a credit to the town office. She took time to show me locations of cemeteries I was unable to locate.

Jim Sardonis, a renowned local sculptor, was commissioned in 1991 to create a statue of a mother panther with her cubs which would be situated on the green in front of the Meetinghouse. The granite which was used came from an abandoned quarry in the town of Braintree. People are encouraged to sit on it and to climb on it. Following are photos of the statue.

The society maintains the Braintree Hill Meetinghouse, erected by the Congregational Society in 1845. A museum on the ground floor contains 19th-century farm tools, domestic paraphernalia, town memorabilia, photographs, manuscript materials, and school records. Activities include Old Home Day (1st Sunday in August) and special programs.
Hours and Admission: by appointment and during scheduled events. Free. Access to the museum room is via two steps down.
Census reporting ends with the 1820 census. There were over 50 separate items of data gathered in the 1830 census. That fact and that names are not in alphabetical order make it impractical to report later years.
