the Society and how it differs from the Weston Historical Commission, which is part of town
Our mission is to collect, preserve, and make available artifacts
relating to the history of Weston, and to educate residents about our community heritage.
The Society’s collections include
objects, photographs, books, and archival records and memorabilia.
Programs and Exhibitions
The society fulfills its educational mission through lectures, publications, our website, and exhibitions such as Artists Look at Weston and our acclaimed tercentennial exhibition The Farmers' Precinct: Three Hundred Years of Weston History."
Funding for the Weston Historical Society comes primarily from membership
dues and additional member contributions. Your membership
is vital to our mission. For special projects we seek special gifts and grants.
The society also has a small endowment.
The Weston Historical Society is located in the Josiah Smith Tavern, 358 Boston Post Road, across from the Weston Town Green.
Most Tuesdays 9-12 noon and by appointment (781-893-3093)
