The Past is Prologue

The Weston Historical Society is committed not only to preserving the past but also to using the past to shed light on present-day town issues. We believe that understanding Weston's past can foster a sense of community and provide a valuable perspective as we plan the future.

Other recent programs or issues of the Weston Historical Society Bulletin have featured the Josiah Smith Tavern, Field School, history of Weston as a dry town, Case Estates, Regis College, and Hobbs Pond and the 80 acres. Whatever form the Society's interest may take, the effect is always to focus attention on and increase our stock of knowledge of Weston topics and places.
