The Saugus Historical Society

PO Box 1209
Saugus, MA 01906-1209



The purpose of the Saugus Historical Society is to cultivate an interest in the history of the town and collect and preserve all matter pertaining to the town's history and citizenry. The organization was begun in 1928.


The society holds six meetings each year: in March, April, May, September, October, and November. Meetings have been held in various locations over the years; currently they are held in our house at 30 Main Street, Saugus on the second wednesday of the month and start at 6:45 PM.

A business meeting and refreshments precedes the main program. The main program typically includes a speaker and often a slide-type show, and members, their guests, and even the general public are invited to attend free of charge.


Special events include participation in Founders' Day in September and the Christmas Stroll in December. A Strawberry Festival is held in June, and our old-fashioned picnic and barbecue is in July.


Our "home" (pictured above) can be found at 30 Main Street, Saugus Center.

Message Boards:

There are several Saugus message boards available, a few of which may be of particular interest including a Saugus non-profit organizations message board (on which Society issues sometimes get discussed), a Saugus politics message board (on which political issues related to historical preservation sometimes get discussed), and a Saugus general discussion message board.
