Westford Historical Society Collections

The Westford Historical Society’s collections are now searchable at PastPerfect On-Line. Many thanks to Virinchi Balabhadrapatruni, whose efforts made this accessibility a reality!

The Westford Historical Society currently has over 5,900 items in its accessions database. Only a fraction of the collections can be on display in the museum at any one time. Other items can be viewed by appointment. Highlights of the collections include:
