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.

You can now support the Freetown Historical Society by shopping with Amazon Smile. If you select the society as your charitable organization, 0.5 % of your eligible purchases will be donated each time you shop through Amazon Smile. For more information please visit http://smile.amazon.com.
