About Us

Welcome To The Westford Historical Society & Museum

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 Store.

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.

Vision

Westford Historical Society engages the public and fosters its connection with Westford’s unique and captivating history.

Mission

The mission of the Westford Historical Society is to promote the understanding and appreciation of Westford’s unique history to the community. By providing programming that features aspects of the daily lives, activities and achievements of Westford residents, we strive to expand and enrich understanding of how our town continues to evolve. We foster an environment of teaching and learning that strengthens our sense of community. We will collect, preserve and exhibit documents, photographs, objects and sites historically significant to Westford, and encourage outside efforts to do the same.
