HHS Annual Meeting CANCELLED
Due to uncertainties of Covid-19, the Annual Meeting of the Heath Historical Society (and the program on the Heath Telephone Company to follow) scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 7th at 5:30 in the Heath Community Hall has been cancelled.
We are hopeful the meeting may be rescheduled in September or early October. We will inform you of the new date if/when one is scheduled. Any new date will likely be for an outdoors event. We will make the decision in light of state and federal recommendations and with health and safety in mind.

We are always on the lookout for people who might be interested in helping with the Historical Society. Any skill is welcomed. We need enthusiastic individuals who are willing to plan and organize and learn.
See any board member for more information.
Our current and upcoming projects include repairing one of the doors on the Solomon Temple Barn, repairing windows in the Old Town House, setting up signs for significant historic sites, and itemizing and describing all the Society's artifacts.
With support from our members and the Massachusetts Preservation Projects Fund the much needed restoration of the Old Town House windows continues to move forward!
