Zillow is typically pulling that information from MLS and as wetdawgs points out, once it is in public records, there is not much you can do to hide it. 

The houses that don't show that information likely have not changed hands in recent years, have not been on MLS, and thus didn't have that information posted there for Zillow to pull it.  I don't believe that Zillow actually goes into each town's public record database or the registry of deeds to grab that info.

The interenet has made the world very transparant.  A realtor can click on a public record button for any listing and get the sale history on a home going back about 30 years.   Anyone can go to the Newton Town's Assessor's database and look up that same information for homes in Newton.  So I wouldn't sweat too much about the information being on here, even though it must feel like there is no privacy anymore!

If the information is in the public records of your government offices, it will show on Zillow.   In other words, you cannot delete the public data from Zillow.
