About us

The mission of the Westerly Historical Society is to research, study, and preserve local history in our community.

We are an all-volunteer, non-profit organization with a dedicated group of members and officers. We own many historical artifacts and an extensive photographic collection. We present a monthly lecture series and issue a monthly newsletter containing scholarly research.

We invite you to join us as a member, volunteer, or donor.

To offer items for the collection, please contact our collections manager at whsarchivist@gmail.com. To join, visit our membership page.
