About Historic Beverly

Mission Statement

To Share Beverly History with Everyone

Description

In 1891, the Beverly Historical Society was founded by a group of residents who cared about preserving the city's history. The 1781 John Cabot House has been its headquarters since 1892. The Cabot House, a regional visitor center, includes exhibits, program space, and research services. We focus on the preservation of objects and documents related to Beverly history, including our three properties. Through all our activities, we nurture a love for history, and a sense of stewardship for the tangible evidence of that history so that it will be preserved for future generations. We actively collect, acquiring (mostly through donation) about 1000 new items yearly. We provide research services to scholars, teachers, and students, as well as to members of the public researching their family history, their neighborhood or other aspects of the city’s story. The Cabot House features exhibits on all aspects of Beverly history, and our programs include lectures, walking tours, fieldtrips, and special events. In 2017 the organization was renamed Historic Beverly, and we renewed our dedication to our 3 houses, 5 centuries and 1000s of stories.
