Membership in the Weston Historical Society is open to all.
We welcome your support and encourage you to get involved. Dues and donations may be made by credit card through Paypal, if you wish.
Standard dues categories are as follows:
Supporting $100 or more
Life $500 or more
Members receive two issues a year of the
Weston Historical Society
Bulletin, edited by Pam Fox. The Bulletin publishes historical articles on subjects of
current local interest, such as the Josiah Smith Tavern, Old Library, Case Estates, and Field School.
We feature organizations celebrating anniversaries for example, in 2010, Lands Sake (30 years)
and Wightman Tennis Center (40 years). Two recent issues were devoted to an in-depth look at
Modernism in Weston from 1930 to 1970. Modern architects such as Carl Koch, Hugh Stubbins, and
Henry Hoover were profiled along with the houses they built in Weston. Articles on Weston-related
subjects are welcome. Click here to link to our Discover Weston
page, where you can then link to past issues of the Bulletin.
The Bulletin would not be possible without dues and contributions from our members.
Invitations to WHS Lectures and Programs:
No need to miss our lectures and programs. Members receive notices of all WHS events, including annual spring and fall meetings. Folksinger and historical balladeer Jim Douglas has entertained us with traditional songs of the season and a demonstration of the limberjack. We've had lectures by Bruce Schwoegler on “Weston Weather on the Eights” (the Hurricane of 1938 and Blizzard of 1978), by Brian Donahue on “The Land Beneath our Feet: New Tools for Understanding Weston's History,” and by Diane Rapaport on her book, The Naked Quaker: True Crimes and Controversies from the Courts of Colonial New England. Other programs – on the Field School, Josiah Smith Tavern, and Regis College - have been designed to provide background on current events.
The Satisfaction of Helping:
Your dues and contributions help us acquire Weston objects and memorabilia, care for our collection of objects, books, manuscripts, and photographs, and develop outreach programs. The WHS depends on the financial support of its members.
The Weston Historical Society is an all-volunteer organization.
During our weekly open hours (Tuesdays from 10 to 12 noon), volunteers work on collections
management and care. Other work times can be arranged. (see Contact Us page)
