Welcome to the Pelham Historical Society and a fascinating glimpse into how Pelham, Massachusetts, helped shape the nation and the world we live in today.
A program of events throughout the year, archives for research, and a new museum exhibit—open on Sunday afternoons this summer—are your windows into the past. From early Scotch-Irish settlers to today’s citizens, Pelham residents have made an impact on the world far beyond their rural town’s borders.
Follow Pelham’s story. At times it echoes the history of other rural New England communities—at other times, it is quite unique. Attend an event, visit the museum, or share your talents as a volunteer!
The Pelham History Museum is Open EVERY SUNDAY from June through September.
The Historical Complex grounds are open DAILY All Year, Dawn to Dusk.
Join us for a tour of the recent residential conversion of the U.C.C. Meetinghouse at 142 Amherst Road. The main structure was built in 1837 and it has evolved over the years. The tour will include some discussion of the building’s history as well as green building retrofit work. Architect/owner Carey Clouse will educate us on why she chose to take up residency in a church.
The Museum will be open from 6:00 pm to 6:30 pm.
Please join us for this annual community event, a traditional New England boiled dinner followed by a home-made pie auction. David Jean will again cater the dinner. Senator Stan Rosenberg returns to delight and entertain us as the “pie auctioneer.” Former State Rep. Ellen Story and current State Rep. Solomon Goldstein Rose will be guests of honor.
