Welcome to the new online home of the Old Bridgewater Historical Society.  Please bear with us as the site undergoes exciting updates and improvements, and come back often to check on our progress!


The Old Bridgewater Historical Society was formed in 1894 with the objective to collect, preserve and publish material relating to the history of the original settlement of Bridgewater, Massachusetts.  Although we are located in West Bridgewater, our focus encompasses the original Bridgewater areas, which are now known as East Bridgewater, West Bridgewater, Brockton (originally North Bridgewater), and Bridgewater itself.
