Welcome to the
Cohasset Historical Society
The Cohasset Historical Society has been collecting,
safeguarding and exhibiting artifacts relating to
Cohasset's historic past since 1928.
The Society currently has over 26,000 accessioned items that include historic textiles and clothing dating from the early 1800s to the present day, and over 7,000 photographs from daguerreotypes to digital images and numerous ephemera that showcase the town's theatrical past. We also have
19th-century furniture and decorative arts, a large collection of paintings depicting the town's landscapes and seascapes, people and places, military service records, letters, and diaries.
The Society offers opportunities for every interest. We welcome volunteers and your active participation.
