The Westford Museum & Historical Society
The Westford Museum is located near
the historic town Common at 2 Boston Road in Westford,
Massachusetts. The office is at 4 Boston Road. The
Museum houses a varied collection of artifacts
typical of small towns. If your interest is genealogy,
be sure and contact us as we have excellent materials
covering many old Westford families. And if
old Westford houses interest you we have house histories
as well. We also have an almost complete collection
of Westford Academy yearbooks, many photographs of
students and teachers, and other academy memorabilia.
If you are looking for a gift that is uniquely Westford,
be sure and check our Museum
Before you visit, double-check the Museum
Calendar as there are a few holiday Sundays when
we are closed. If you're doing research don't
hesitate to send an e-mail or call ahead so we can prepare
for your visit. We look forward to meeting you.
