Since its incorporation in May of 1891 the Beverly Historical Society and Museum has been preserving and caring for Beverly's past. We are a private non-profit organization funded solely by the generosity of our members and the local business and citizens community. Our historic houses are the Balch House, the Cabot House and the Hale Farm.
It is the mission of the Society to preserve, promote and interpret Beverly’s social, artistic, and cultural history.
It fulfills this mission by maintaining historic properties; by collecting, exhibiting, and conserving artifacts and archival materials made, used, or associated with Beverly; by making available to researchers library collections;
By initiating and working with special interest groups within the society in order to further specific collections, properties, and interests;
By advocating the conservation and preservation of Beverly’s natural and built environment; by presenting educational programs; and by other means as may, from time to time, become appropriate.
