Boxford Historical Society

Boxford Historical Society

Boxford Historical Society was formed in 1937 by a group of Boxford residents that included Harry L. Cole, Mary Abbie Herrick, Raymond Perley and  Robert B. Parkhurst as board members. There were also 210 charter members of the society at the first meeting in December that year. At that time, the mission of the society was “to preserve letters, documents, household articles and personal memories of the old homes and families and to promote interest in the town by recording information about families, industrial life and all items pertaining to the history of the town.” The mission also required that the Boxford Historical Society preserve a “historic dwelling” which was to be used by the society to hold meetings. The first home of the society was the old Bacon Lilbrary building on Elm Street however, in 1941 Gertrude Holyoke gifted her home on Topsfield Road to the organization after her death.
