This picture of the Tewksbury Diner was taken sometime during the 1950s.

This autograph of former Massachusetts Governor and Civil War General Benjamin F. Butler is from March 15, 1869.  General Butler lived on the Tewksbury town line and his son-in-law, General Adelbert Ames, lived on the top of what is now known as "Ames Hill" in North Tewksbury

This image is of a tin type from 1855 and it shows Tewksbury residents George, Jennie, and Edward Clark

This souvenir pin is from the 1934 200th Anniversary of the Town of Tewksbury

The Tewksbury Historical Society is a non-profit organization with a mission of preserving and documenting the history of Tewksbury.


One of the projects we're currently working on is the identification of the Revolutionary War Line of March in Tewksbury, commemorating the men from Tewksbury who answered the call on April 19, 1975.  If you would like to donate to the program, please click here for the donation form. 

We are always looking to add Tewksbury-related items to our archives.  We gratefully accept donations of photographs, postcards, land deeds, town papers, class or sports pictures and anything else that has a connection to the Town of Tewksbury.

Do you have family heirlooms that you are unable to donate but would like to have them preserved?  If so then perhaps you would consider allowing the Historical Society to digitally scan or take pictures of them.  This process will not harm the original and it will allow the Historical Society to preserve an electronic image for future generations to study and appreciate.   

Here are examples of some interesting items that we've been allowed to make digital copies of for the Historical Society:
