The Dedham Historical Society was founded in 1859 by a group of citizens concerned that the townâ€™s history not be forgotten. The Society was incorporated for the â€œpurposes of collecting and preserving such â€¦ records â€¦ and traditions as may tend to â€¦ perpetuate the history of New England and especially the town of Dedham.â€
The Society preserves and actively seeks information on all the towns making up the original Dedham Grant, from Bellingham and Plainville in the south, to Natick and Wellesley on the northwest. When the Society began, Norwood and Westwood had not become separate towns, so the collections include many items from the â€œSouth Precinctâ€ and the â€œClapboardtrees Parish.â€
The Dedham Historical Society & Museum has two distinct phases of operation: the museum and the library, which are open at different times and are in different sections of the building. For more information please call 781-326-1385 or email email@example.com.
Tuesday-Friday 12 noon â€“ 4 p.m, admission $2
Tuesday and Thursday 9 a.m â€“ 4 p.m, admission $5Â (There is no admission fee for DHS members) Both the library and the museum are open on even dated Saturdays from 1 p.m â€“ 4 p.m *It is recommended you call ahead and speak to our archivist regarding your research prior to your visit.

â€œWish You Were Here: Souvenirs of Dedhamâ€ Exhibit Open
Why do we collect souvenirs when we travel? What do the things we bring home tell about ourselves and the places that we visit? How have our ideas changed about what is okay to take from a historic site?
Wish You Were Here: Souvenirs of Dedham explores these questions through examining objects from our collection that were bought or taken as souvenirs. Images of some of Dedham’s cherished people and places, such as the Dedham Courthouse, the Endicott Estate, and Fisher Ames, adorn candy dishes, pitchers, and plates. Images of historic places appear on spoons, tins trays, and toothpick holders. These items were made to be souvenirs– objects that remind us of an enjoyable and memorable experience.
Museum hours are Tuesday – Friday 12-4 PM and even dated Saturdays from 1-4 PM.
Admission: free for DHS members; $2 for non-members.
