Edwards Museum

Edwards Museum Come explore Chesterfield's past! Edwards Museum, Chesterfield, MA Curator: Shannon K. Brisbois This circa 1820 building was a stable and carriage house for Oliver Edwards.

In the early 1920’s a granddaughter of Mr. Edwards had it restored and used it as a summer house: a place to spend her leisure hours. In 1950, Edith Fobes Hull, a great-granddaughter of Mr. Edwards, donated the house to the town to be used as a museum. This resulted in the formation of the Chesterfield Historical Society. Today the Edwards Memorial Museum features a Victorian Parlor and old organ, as well as period dresses and costumes. Come see the antique furniture, spinning wheels, household tools, equipment, pictures and so much more the Edwards Museum has to offer.

Take a Tour!

Tour of the Edwards Museum!
So sorry for the cutting out at the beginning... the reception in the center is dicey! What you missed is my explanation that the fire trucks and some cars decided to have a rolling parade this morning and drove all over town while everyone waved from their yards!
If you can’t go to the parade, the parade comes to you!
