About the Historical Society
On the evening of April 17, 1974, twelve people met to review and approve the new by-laws for the New Braintree Historical Society. These neighbors dedicated themselves to collecting, preserving, researching, and displaying materials of local historical interest. Their goal was to establish a museum that would house those materials, stimulating local pride in, and love for, their town. At that time New Braintree had a 223-year history made rich and valuable by the hard work of its families.
Thanks to the continuous work and dedication of many, we have built upon their dream.
