The Society, founded in 1886, is a non-profit group of men and women dedicated to enjoying and sharing the history and traditions of Malden. We do this through meetings, publications, social events, exhibits, acquisitons and mainting collections of documents and artifacts pertaining to Malden, its people, organizations, businesses, and institutions.
The 2016 - 2017 season of the Malden Historical Society is beginning on Tuesday, October 4 at 7 PM. This year Board member, Barbara Tolstrup, will be giving an illustrated presentation entitled "Historic Relics". She has developed a fascinating program that will enlighten you on some of these "relics" that can still be found in and around Malden. The program will feature these relics and relate their current prescence to their previous use. If you know the location of some of these "oprhans of history" you will have time after the presentation to share them with the rest of us.
Details have been added to the Upcoming Events page including date and time.
Our first meeting of the fall schedule brought Dr. Claudia Bushman to speak on Harriet Hanson Robinson in the Ryder Gallery. Dr. Bushman gave an enjoyable and informative talk on a woman who evolved starting as a 10 year old "mill girl" in Lowell into one of the early forces in the suffrage movement in Malden and Massachusetts. Great talk and great speaker!
Don't miss next months panel discussion which should be great. Get details on our Upcoming Events page.
