Supporting Historic Preservation and the Historical Society

The Marlborough Historical Society is a non-profit (501(c)3), all-volunteer organization, and your support enables us to carry out our mission of historic preservation, education, and celebration.

Other than a few small grants for specific programs, the Society receives no city, state, or federal funds for its ongoing operations.

If you would like to make a donation of services or a bequest, or would like to discuss other ways to support the Society, please contact us.

Donations for archival research services

We are all volunteers.  100% of your donation goes into storage materials and preservation services.
