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.

Explore our website to learn more about our Museum and Collections, find information on Resources about Whately History, and learn about future Events.
