Cambridge Historical Society
The Cambridge Historical Society is the holder of many eclectic collections from Cambridge’s past and present. Specializing in social history, our collections tell the story of how people lived during the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, the Industrial Revolution, and the cultural revolution of the mid-20th century..
The Cambridge Historical Society is an active repository for Cambridge’s tradition and history. It will maintain any property entrusted to it and collect, preserve, and interpret items of historical and antiquarian significance. The Society will encourage research and involvement in these efforts by its members and the community at large. In so doing, it will promote a better understanding of history as an important factor in the everyday affairs of the City and its residents.
