 Annual Appeal 

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

Dear Friends of the Natick Historical Society,

If you haven’t visited us recently, you might not know that the Society has undergone some HUGE changes in the past year. We’ve included some highlights below.

A New Research Library and Office

One of our major goals for the last few years has been accomplished, that of moving our Research Library & Office to new quarters. The new space is at 207 Union Street, just a three-minute walk from our beautiful museum on the ground floor of the Bacon Free Library, and just across the road from the Eliot Burying Ground.

More Museum Space

Our Museum also looks very different, with much more space set aside for exhibits and public programs and much more natural light coming into the space through our newly cleared windows. Walls and exhibit cases are being repainted, floors refinished, and beautiful new lighting installed. Once all work is complete, more visitors than ever before will be able to view our collections and attend our events. We expect the museum to reopen this spring, although work on our new exhibits will continue for some time to come. 

It is with the support of the Natick community that we are able to sustain and expand our programs - and to keep the Museum open to the public. Your contribution will ensure that we continue to thrive.  We hope that you can help us.  You can make your donation by clicking the donate button:
