The Norwell Historical Society is a private membership organization that works to preserve the artifacts related to the history of Norwell, Massachusetts.
Our town was founded in 1636 as part of Scituate, incorporated in 1849 as South Scituate, and finally re-named as Norwell in 1888. The Norwell Historical Society was founded in 1935 by private citizens interested in preserving the town's rich history. The Society now plans and arranges for the promotion of knowledge about the Town of Norwell.
