Tewksbury Historical Society

Tewksbury, Massachusetts
Founded 1993

For more than two decades we have worked to preserve, document and educate the community about our local history.  We would welcome your participation.

About Us

The Tewksbury Selectmen voted unanimously to allow the Tewksbury Historical Society to put up 9 granite posts as Memorials to the Tewksbury Militia that marched to Concord to protect and keep safe that community on April 19, 1775.  One hundred men marched that morning and fought the British who had invaded Lexington and then Concord.  Tewksbury’s three Militia Companies arrived at Meriam’s Corner and fought the British on the flanks and from the rear of the British column as they returned to Boston.

Hardy-Pike House

The Hardy-Pike House is threatened by demolition by the Town of Tewksbury but the Tewksbury Historical Commission placed a nine-month Demolition Delay on the building, which is owned by a Houston car dealership group.  The house still stands where it has for the past 275 years.  Developer James Andella and the Society are working hard to try to move it to 155 East Street, a house lot owned by Mr. Andella’s company.  He plans to place it there to use as a dentist office or bank but he needs a zoning change at Town Meeting in May 2016.  We'll keep you informed.
