We Need You!

You don’t need to be an historian to know there’s something special about Methuen.

[dropcap style=”font-size: 48px; color: #9b9b9b;”]A[/dropcap]s you pass through the heart of the community, it’s hard not to notice the many unique structures that have been entrusted to future generations by the Searles, Tenney and Nevins families. The miles of magnificent granite walls and turrets, significant buildings such as the Methuen Memorial Music Hall, the Searles Building, the Nevins Library, the Tenney Gate House and so many others are all part of Methuen’s rich history.

[dropcap style=”font-size: 48px; color: #9b9b9b;”]W[/dropcap]hile the structures are all truly special in their own right, they’re a part of the unique story that is Methuen, Massachusetts. When you support the Methuen Historical Society, you help preserve the past and build a better future. There is no better way to make a difference in the community.

The Work the Society Does

[one_third]Preservation – Whether it’s fundraising for the ongoing maintenance of the historic Tenney Gate House, searching for artifacts of Methuen’s rich history, or partnering with other interested public and private organizations, the Society actively works to protect the community’s legacy.

[one_third]Advocacy – The Society gives voice to Methuen’s heritage. Regardless of whether it’s the preservation of our countless historic buildings, treasured artifacts of days gone by, or the stories of Methuen’s founders, the Society is an effective advocate for those things that make up the fabric of our community.

[one_third_last]Education – By telling the story of Methuen, the Society works to ensure that future generations know the interesting and unique history of a community that was blessed by the generosity and hard work of millionaires and mill workers. By educating school children and new arrivals, we pass on the stories that bring the granite walls, castle-like turrets and other grand structures to life for everyone to enjoy![/one_third_last]
