About Us

Where We Are

image186

We do our work in three Norwell locations: our Research Library is located at the Norwell Middle School, our Archives are located on the Third Floor of the Sparrell School, and our Museum is located at the historic Jacobs Farmhouse. 

How We Celebrate History

image187

From tours of the Jacobs Farmhouse, to gatherings that bring together neighbors to learn about their local history, to historic talks and presentations for all ages--this is how we celebrate 

the history of our town, 

one historic event at a time.

 See our events page for more info.

Preservation Work We Do

The Norwell Historical Society is the keeper of our town's treasures--from

 old postcard collections, to family bibles, 

to Lucy Damon Waugh's 1888 

wedding dress--we protect and preserve

the items that tell our town's story,

while we publish and write 

about the continued tale.

BECOME PART OF HISTORY.
