About us

The Massachusetts Historical Society is an independent research library that collects, preserves, makes accessible, and communicates manuscripts and other materials in order to promote the study of the history of Massachusetts and the nation-a mission it has pursued since 1791.

Vision Statement:

The Massachusetts Historical Society is committed to the principle that public knowledge of the nation's past is fundamental to its future.
We welcome everyone to support our mission, use our resources, take part in our programs, and become a member.
