Welcome To
The Westford Museum & Historical Society

The Westford Museum is located near the historic town Common at 2 Boston Road in Westford, Massachusetts. The office is at 4 Boston Road. The Museum houses a wonderful collection of artifacts typical of small towns. If your interest is genealogy, be sure and contact us as we have excellent materials covering many old Westford families.  And if old Westford houses interest you we have house histories as well. We also have an almost complete collection of Westford Academy yearbooks, many photographs of students and teachers, and other academy memorabilia. If you are looking for a gift that is uniquely Westford, be sure and check our Museum Store page.

Before you visit, double-check the Museum Calendar as there are a few holiday Sundays when we are closed.  If you're doing research don't hesitate to send an e-mail or call ahead so we can prepare for your visit.  We look forward to meeting you.

Parkerville Historic DistrictMultimedia Parkerville Presentation
Reprise
at the Museum, Thursday 21 May, 7 p.m.

Following a successful presentation at Nashoba Valley Ski area, we've heard from many people that they were disappointed they couldn't make it. Geoff Hall has agreed to reprise the event at the Museum in May.

"Imagine living on a farm 200 years ago without all the amenities of modern day living and experiencing the winter we are having now," said presenter Geoff Hall. "Parker Village has been the area of Westford that has maintained the 'rural character' the town is known for. The discussion will highlight individuals, families and sites that have added to its history. There will be plenty of time to share experiences of those who may have grown up in that area. I am hoping that others will share their knowledge of Parkerville's history making for a lively discussion. With any luck the snow will be gone!!!"

Many thanks to the Nashoba Valley Ski Area and to Representative Jim Arciero for sponsoring the event. The presentation is free and open to the public.
