Run by an entirely volunteer board, DHS offers monthly programs and publishes monographs relating to Dorchester history. The Society owns three historic houses, dating from 1661, 1765 and 1806, and a c. 1850 barn; it also holds and exhibits collections of written and printed materials, furniture, paintings, items from the community's agricultural and industrial past, and more. The houses are open monthly for public tours; find the schedule on the website.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we were forced to cancel all of our in-person events. However, the Society was able to adapt to a virtual environment by offering online programs. These programs were recorded and can be viewed on our YouTube channel.
