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 ca. 1754 Bates Ship Chandlery serves as the Society's Maritime Museum, and the 1810 Captain John Wilson House, interprets life in Cohasset during the 1800s. Our newest property, the Beechwood Meetinghouse and Museum houses our fire, police, and Beechwood community collections, highlighted by our two beautifully restored hand tub pumpers. Read more...
