Does anybody know where I could get historical mortgage rates or refinancing trends for a city?

Specifically, I'm looking for information on Cambridge, MA and surrounding cities during the 1990s, but any information would be helpful.

1990's....first time rates hit the single digits.
1993 I got into the business, rates around the 5s
1995 or 6 bought my house with a rate in the mid 6s
they kept going down to...
1998 was the global bond meltdown, Russia and Brazil
went down some more and then started trending up until 9/11/2001

You probably wont find a historical chart for a specific city, rates/pricing are set for nationwide pricing, then a slight price adjustment for a few states
( not adjustment to the rate but to the price ).  The generic pricing should give you the trend you are looking for on the link below.

This site has historical mortgage rates using the national average, but I don't know of any regional source for historical interest rates. 

You might try Freddie Mac. I found some information that looked like they had a regional breakdown of information, but I was unable to find the old historical information from them. Maybe you will have better luck. Hope the links help.
