Archives & Research Center
We're putting Lexington’s history in its proper place!
Lexington Historical Society will open a new archives and research center in 2021. Designed to blend into the landscape as a barn-style building, the center only looks old. Inside it's a state-of-art, fitting repository for Lexington's unique physical legacy.
The goals of this multi-year, grant and private donor-funded project:
-to provide an accessible and welcoming facility for Lexington residents and visitors from around the world to access archival material about three centuries of Lexington history.
-to provide space for the growing volume of the town’s non-governmental historic records.
-to construct and staff a new facility without town funds.
-to provide a safe and professional environment for staff and volunteers
Our new building meets these goals beautifully and we are excited to share it with the community whose generosity helped build it! See below for a photo slideshow of the project, from initial archaeology to final occupancy.
We look forward to launching a fitting future for Lexington's past!
Stay tuned for more details about our Grand Opening, currently scheduled for Thursday October 7, 2021.
