ABOUT US

The Cohasset Historical Society has been collecting, preserving, and exhibiting art and artifacts relating to Cohasset's historic past since its incorporation as a non-profit organization in 1928. Headquartered at 106 South Main Street in the town's former 1903 library, the Society also operates three additional museums: the recently reinstalled and reinterpreted Maritime Museum (formerly the ca. 1754 Bates Ship Chandlery), the 1810 Captain John Wilson House, and the Beechwood Meetinghouse and Museum, our newest property, which houses our fire, police, and Beechwood community collections.   Read more...
