As 2023 comes to a close, we are in critical need of funds to help with repairs to our elevators, alarm systems and heat pump for the Resource Center. We will apply to the Mass. Cultural Council for funding but need to raise matching funds. Donations can be made by check to the society at 31 Tenney Road, Braintree MA 02184.
We are also looking for corporate sponsors to help us reach our Annual Appeal goal. Remember. we are an all-volunteer organization and 100% of dues and donations are used for operating and capital expenses.

Over the last few months, BHS launched a new Volunteer Initiative. In our two very successful Volunteer Orientation sessions, a full house of Volunteers brought new energy, ideas, and enthusiasm about the incredible history and legacy of the Braintree Historical Society. Our goal for this Initiative is to increase our volunteers to 100 over the course of the coming year. Won't you join us?
