Welcome to the Upton Historical Society (UHS) web site. Our goal is to provide you with useful information about our society, who we are and the resources we?re able to offer anyone interested in the history of Upton, Massachusetts. The Society Museum is open to the public where assistance is available by Society staff who are always pleased to be available. We strive to foster and encourage the interest of residents, their families and the general public in the accumulation of all historic data as it relates to Upton. In return, UHS endeavors to inform everyone by providing written and printed materials.

The mission statement of the Society is to caretake for, collect and preserve an extensive collection of historical records, artifacts, pictures and mementos donated by those who realize the importance of preserving Upton?s heritage. This encompasses the Town, and surrounding areas, of Upton regarding the people, industries, folklore and customs. Our holdings encompass history of buildings which was done in 1996 by a grant from the Massachusetts Historical Commission; Town Reports dating from 1890 to the present; and Assessor?s published records prior to 1975.


Collections on display at the Society Museum include over 50 volumes of photographs and over 120 scrapbooks of news articles since the late 1800's. Our holdings encompass:
     - histories of buildings
               (completed in 1996 by a grant from the
Massachusetts Historical Commission),
     - Town Reports dating from 1890 to the present,
     - Assessor?s published records prior to 1975.
