Welcome to the Hanson Historical Society website.

Founded in 1961, the Hanson Historical Society is dedicated to collecting, preserving, and studying the history of the town of Hanson, Plymouth County, Massachusetts. We hold meetings from April through November each year, and host great speakers who provide lectures on local and national historical topics. We also host our famous Strawberry Festival each June and Harvest and Craft Fair in September. We also collect manuscripts, books, photographs, furniture and other artifacts pertaining to history of Hanson and its families.

Please consider becoming a member or a volunteer and experiencing all we have to offer!
