Where History Comes Alive...

Due to the uncertainty of the New England weather and the safety of our volunteers, the museum will be closed from December 17, 2013 through April 6, 2014. Usual hours will resume on Monday April 7, 2014. This time will allow us to refresh and add to our exhibits.   If you would like to arrange a visit to the museum during this time, you may do so by contacting the museum at 508-644-5310 or freetownmuseum@gmail.com.

     The Freetown Historical Society was founded in 1968 by a group of citizens who felt the need to preserve and protect the history of Freetown and the surrounding communities. Since that time, the museum has grown from the original building, which was only about half of what the building is today, to include the ten buildings and over eleven acres of land we have today. This growth has been possible through generous financial donations and the dedication of its members.
