Medford Historical Society & Museum
At MHSM, we have a passion for Medford's history, both at the local level and the ways that Medford's history has made an impact on the world. We also believe that understanding history builds better communities and that the narratives we develop contribute to our identity as a city.
For years, we have maintained our museum collections, hosted historically themed events, supported scholarly research, published articles about Medford history, and helped residents research their genealogy and the history of their homes.
Recent events have sparked us to consider whether or not our view of Medford history is broad enough and inclusive enough to strengthen our community effectively. We want to be a positive force in the community.
To that end, as a first step, we've created this brief questionnaire and would appreciate your support by answering a few questions.
