Welcome to the Boxborough Historical Society

Boxborough Historical Society Celebrates Museum and Anniversary


On October 24 the Society will be celebrating its founding in 1961 and the opening of the Boxborough Museum in October, 2005.


The Museum will be open from 2:00 to 4:00 pm (masks must be worn inside). The highlight of the celebration will be an outdoor concert on the lawn of the Museum of 18th and 19th century fiddle music featuring Dave Reiner, a renowned fiddler and co-author of the book "Old Time Fiddling Across American". The concert will start at 2:30, seating is limited, and masks are recommended. In case of rain the concert will be cancelled but the Museum will be open. Light refreshments will be served.

Annual Meeting

A brief Annual Meeting of the Society and Election of Officers and Directors will take place at the Museum on Sunday October 24 at 1:30 PM just prior to the anniversary celebration. All members are encouraged to attend. We will be electing members to our Board along with the Board’s officers. We are looking to fill the position of Board Secretary for the coming year and would welcome a volunteer. Your participation is appreciated and encouraged! Remember: many hands make light work. Your ‘hands’ can help.
