Since 1891, Historic Beverly has collected, preserved and interpreted Beverly history.
We accomplish those goals through preservation and interpretation of our three historic sites: Balch House, Hale Farm, and the Cabot House; acquisition and conservation of objects and documents related to Beverly history; research services for students, teachers, scholars and the public, lectures, tours, and community-wide events, including Beverly Homecoming and Trails and Sails; and collaborative activities with local and regional institutions like Beverly Main Streets and the Essex National Heritage Area.
History grows with time and preservation needs increase as well. Please help us continue these important programs by becoming a member of the Society, or making a donation to the Fund for Beverly History. Your support will make a significant difference.
Historic Beverly is making history again.
After years of planning and preparation for a project that will provide us with the tools we need to preserve our collections and improve our accessibility, Historic Beverly is ready to make critical upgrades to our headquarters and flagship building, the 1781 John Cabot House. We have already raised more than 65% of the project funds from generous donors, with just another $325,000 to raise, convincing us that now is the time to bring the campaign public, complete our fundraising, and embark on this crucial project.
