Thank you Whately for supporting the Town Hall Rehabilitation Project!

Join us for our Spring Festival on May 28, featuring our new museum exhibit, Bygone Whately, and a lot more.  


The Whately Historical Society was founded in 1966 to preserve the town's history and to educate townspeople and others about Whately's past.  The Society sponsors programs and activities about the history and culture of the area; maintains a museum of Whately documents, images and objects; and sells copies of the town histories.

We invite everyone to our activities and welcome new members from our community and throughout the Connecticut River Valley.  Please explore our web site to learn more about us and our fascinating rural town.
