Welcome to the Pelham Historical Society and a fascinating glimpse into how Pelham, Massachusetts, helped shape the nation and the world we live in today. A program of events throughout the year, archives for research, and a new museum exhibit—open on Sunday afternoons this summer—are your windows into the past. From early Scotch-Irish settlers to today’s citizens, Pelham residents have made an impact on the world far beyond their rural town’s borders. Follow Pelham’s story. At times it echoes the history of other rural New England communities—at other times, it is quite unique. Attend an event, visit the museum, or share your talents as a volunteer!
