Old Bridgewater Historical Society

162 Howard St, Old Bridgewater, MA 02379

The Old Bridgewater Historical Society collects, preserves and publishes material relating to the history of the original settlement of Bridgewater, Massachusetts. It possesses many historical materials, including genealogical information and artifacts pertaining to local history. The society is now the caretaker of two historical buildings. The Old Bridgewater Historical Museum Building, built in 1901, is an example of turn-of-the century Greek Revival architecture. The second building is the Reverend James Keith Parsonage, which has been restored to its original 1662 condition on the original site. Both are open to the public. Although the museum building is located in West Bridgewater, the focus of the society also encompasses East Bridgewater, West Bridgewater and Brockton (originally North Bridgewater).
