OUR COLLECTIONS SHINE A LIGHT
INTO THE RICHNESS OF OUR SHARED HERITAGE
The Historical Society of Old Yarmouth collects objects and items of all types that pertain to Yarmouth’s colorful history, from the earliest times through the first settlements, from the impact of wars to the effects of social and technological change. We often conduct exhibits and place objects from our collections on public display.
The Society maintains three separate collections:
• The Museum Collection (Click on photos to advance slideshow featuring some items in our Museum Collection.)
• Our Library and Archives
• Digital Photograph Archives Many have been digitized and are now available online at DigitalCommonwealth.org through our collaboration with the Boston Public Library.
