The Organization:
Founded by a group of historians in 1905, the Cambridge Historical Society (CHS) has promoted a better understanding of history as an important factor in the everyday affairs of the City and its residents for more than 100 years.  Since 1957, CHS has been headquartered at the late-17th-century Hooper-Lee-Nichols House on historic Brattle Street, the second-oldest house in Cambridge. In 2013, the Society completed a renovation of its home, engaging long-time supporters and new friends. A core part of its work has been public programming delivered both at the Hooper-Lee-Nichols House and throughout Cambridge.  CHS maintains property entrusted to it and collects, preserves, and interprets items of historical and antiquarian significance and encourages research and involvement in these efforts by its members and the community at large. Please see www.cambridgehistory.org.

Recently, the CHS Council, the Society's governing body, undertook a strategic planning process to set priorities and to guide its programs and investments. The Council articulated an ambitious vision for 2015-18 to demonstrate how the history of Cambridge shapes this vibrant community, informing present-day decision making and planning .  The core of this plan encompasses:
  • Programs (convenings, tours, talks, school programs);
  • Publications (research, newsletters, stories);
  • Exhibits (house and exhibits, online materials, community-based exhibits, community-contributed stories);
  • Researcher support (physical and digital archives, library, collections, staff support).
The new Executive Director will lead this process of growth and renewal.

Programs and Education
