You are the key to our future!  Thank you for keeping us going on the right path.

Thank you for considering a donation to the Natick Historical Society. NHS is a 501(c)3 charitable organization and your donation is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Your generous contribution to the Annual Appeal of the Natick Historical Society will fund new initiatives, educational programs, and continuing operations, including:

–School Programs—One of our biggest goals moving into 2017 is to expand the programs we offer to students at Natick Schools, reaching a broader audience every year. In addition to our highly successful 3rd grade tour program and the lecture series that began at the high school in 2016, we will expand our offerings to include new programs for middle school students. We offer local Natick history, insights on the Revolution, the Civil War, and WWII, and teach skills based on primary source use.

–Exhibitions and CollectionsOur artifact collections and archives are the heart of our institution. We work continuously to improve them and, with your help, exhibit them in the best possible way.  In 2017, we have plans to refresh more of our exhibits and rehouse some special collections. An area of particular need for new housing is our second edition of the Eliot Bible, an essential part of our collection. (See current exhibitions here).

 –Sharing History with a Wider AudienceFollowing the runaway success of our 2015 book, Have You Ever Wondered…? Natick Explained, we published The Stories We Tell: Natick Explored in November 2016. Both books of short stories are available for purchase (click here). In 2017 Natick residents also can enjoy a revamped website, social media, and our superb newsletter.
