The Acton Historical Society works to discover, preserve and share facts and artifacts from the rich history of Acton, Massachusetts with the hope of spreading enthusiasm for and knowledge of our town. Come visit us or contact us to share your own stories of Acton and its people. We look forward to hearing from you.
Open House in December
On Saturday, December 8, from 1-4 pm, please join us for the Society's annual Holiday Open House at the Hosmer House Museum, 300 Main Street, Acton. Activities will include:
World War 1 Exhibit Appreciation
Thank you to all who visited the Society's World War 1 exhibit over Veterans Day weekend and to all the members who worked to prepare for and host the exhibit!
For more about Actonians' experiences in World War 1, see our most recent blog post.
Goats at the Hosmer House
As part of a larger project to improve the landscaping around the Hosmer House, the Acton Historical Society was visited by a crew of four goats. Their "goatscaping" work was the subject of a recent video produced by Acton TV featuring AHS co-president Bill Klauer.
