• Welcome!

    At the Medfield Historical Society history comes alive!  We are an enthusiastic nonprofit membership organization working to preserve and share Medfield’s history.  Our library and archives, our museum and our rich offerings of programs and exhibitions are accessible to all—building a sense of excitement for local history, pride of citizenship and stewardship of our legacy for generations to come.

    About the Society

    Established in 1891, our historical society is one of the oldest in the Commonwealth. We are a private, all-volunteer, not-for-profit organization dedicated to preserving, promoting and sharing Medfield’s history. We provide connections with local history that enrich our lives and our community. We share the town’s remarkable heritage by collecting and preserving our stories, by interpreting and displaying materials pertaining to the history of the town and its people and by fostering public involvement in and appreciation of our rich heritage and culture. We are eager to share this with you.


    We hold informative public programs five times each year—the first Monday evening of October, November, February, March and April—usually at the First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church, a National Register property, at 26 North Street, plus a number of members-only social events.
