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.
