Programs & Events

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 below.

Due to the 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.
