Mission Statement

​The purpose for which the Society is organized is to act as a repository for Tewksbury history. It shall maintain any property entrusted to it and collect, preserve and interpret items of historical and traditional significance. The Society shall encourage research and involvement in these efforts by its members and the community at large. The Society shall sponsor history-based activities in the town on a regular basis. In so doing, it shall promote a better understanding of history as an important factor in the everyday affairs of the Town of Tewksbury and its residents.

Our Story

Headquartered in Tewksbury, Massachusetts, the Tewksbury Historical Society was founded in 1993.

For more than two decades we have worked to preserve, document and educate the community about our local history. Some of our projects include (but are not limited to):

  • Organizing the annual Patriot Line of March ceremony to honor the local men who marched to and fought in Concord on April 19th, 1775
  • Attempts to preserve the Hardy-Pike House
  • Attempts to preserve the old Foster Schoolhouse
  • Organizing historic walks highlighting the town’s long history
  • Organize and schedule the “Warren Carey” Historic lecture series
