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 Office- One of our major goals for the last few years has been accomplished, that of moving our administrative operations to new office space. The new space is on 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. Once all work is complete, more visitors than ever before will be able to view our collections and attend our events.

New Exhibits- The museum’s vintage wooden exhibit cases are being cleaned out, and the exhibits inside reimagined. Our newly formed Exhibits Committee is gathering new stories of Natick’s past to share with the community, and will be putting these stories on display once the museum reopens to the public in 2018.

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:
