Cambridge Historical Society [MA]
"The Cambridge Historical Society has been a repository of history and culture for over 100 years. We are an active non-profit (501.C.3) organization and are dedicated to promoting an interest in all aspects of the history and heritage of Cambridge." Founded in 1905, the Cambridge Historical Society seeks to preserve and promote Cambridge, MA, area history. The society owns and maintains the Hooper-Lee Nichols House, which is currently closed to tours for renovations, and the Brinkler Research Library, which contains an enormous collection of Cambridge-area books, newspapers, periodicals, documents, and photographs.
The site offers detailed information about all library holdings, but no library access, a virtual tour of and visitor information about the Hooper-Lee Nichols House, a listing of all publications, with information for prospective buyers, and an events calendar.
