Volunteer and job Opportunities at the Historical Society

Welcome To
The Westford Museum & Historical Society

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 page.

Before you visit, double-check the Museum Calendar as 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.
