The Boston Historical Society and Museum

The Boston Historical Society and Museum

Founded in 1881 to save the Old State House from being moved to Chicago, The Bostonian Society is the historical society for the city of Boston. Through library and museum collections which date from the 1630s to the 21st century, through exhibitions on the American Revolution and Boston's neighborhoods, and through programs for adults and children, the Society brings Boston history to life.

The Bostonian Society is the first stop for anyone interested in the city's history. With a museum within the 1713 Old State House, a research library and programs and events for all ages, the Society provides a comprehensive historical and educational resource.
