The Historical Society of Old Newbury seeks to preserve and share the history of Newbury, Massachusetts, including Newburyport, West Newbury, Byfield, and Plum Island. To this end, the society operates the Cushing House Museum & Garden, which houses the society's collections. Example artifacts include four Chinese coastal Hong paintings; a 17th–century Dutch cradle; local furnishings; silver; needlework; fans; hatboxes; 19th–century toys; clocks; and a painting by Cecilia Beaux (1855–1942), an American society portrait artist.

The society offers exhibits, museum tours, a research library and research assistance.
