The Mattapoisett Historical Society will open for the season on July 2 at 1:00 pm. This summer, the Mattapoisett Historical Society will commend the work of Mattapoisett’s Finest: Fire and Police in a special summer exhibit featuring the history and community contributions of these two departments. Join us for a fascinating look into our town’s vital Fire and Police departments, celebrating all that these men and women have done for us over the past 157 years. The permanent exhibits feature artifacts from Mattapoisett’s whaling days, fine furniture, antique toys, and artifacts from Mattapoisett’s agricultural past. The museum is open Wednesday through Saturday from 1:00 – 4:00 pm, closed July 4. Admission is free for members, $5 for adults, $2 for children 6-12, and free for children under 6.
The Historical Society will also be bringing back our Walking Tour of the Waterfront every first and third Saturday of the month. The tour will leave at 2:00 pm from the Mattapoisett Historical Society and will explore our town and its role in building the whalers for Nantucket and New Bedford. Explore the waterfront streets and wharves where the action took place. The tour is free with Museum Admission.
The Mattapoisett Historical Society will offer a wide variety of programs for both children and adults this summer. Please visit our website at www.mattapoisetthistoricalsociety.org to view our Calendar of Events, or call 508-758-2844 for more information.
