The BHS is a wonderful source of information especially for those searching family ancestors. We also boost a number of fascinating books of Mass and Boylston history. Come and visit and talk to our knowledge curator! We are open Saturdays 9-12pm and Sundays 2-4pm or just call to make an appointment. We also have programs. Listed here is a brief descriptor of our March and April Programs: Sunday March 13th 3pm at the BHS Unwritten in Stone: New England's Enigmatic Stone Sites Remain so Enigmatic Scattered throughout New England's wood,waters and backyards are hundreds of stone features left behind by earlier generations of New Englanders. Besides the familiar abandoned farmsteads and field walls, there are more enigmatic features: stone chambers, cairns, rows, U-shapes, rocking stones, petroglyphs and perched boulders . At times ascribed to farmers, Indians, Irish monks, Vikings, Phonecians, Templars, and natural forces , perhaps the only thing they all have in common is that few can agree on who made them, when, and for what purpose . In this presentation, we will visit a number of such lithic sites in Massachusetts and neighboring states, present theories of their origin, and explore why they remain so controversial. Peter Anick is the state coordinator for NEARA , the New England Antiquities Research Association , a group dedicated to the documentation and study of regional lithic site.. A professional computer scientist and volunteer archaeologist, Peter strives to balance keeping an open mind with the need for scientific objectivity. Tuesday April 12th, 7pm at Cyprian Keyes Golf Course A History of Cyprian Keyes: The old farm and the Keyes Family. Please join us in teh Music room at Cyprian Keyes for a fascinating presentation on the history of this site. Desert will be served afterwards.

Mission: Our mission is to preserve the history of the town and surrounding areas.
