Marshfield Historical Society

The Society is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2013 with ten special events.  Click on the above link to be transferred to the Marshfield Historical Society’s site to see details on the programs offered.

The 1835 Marcia Thomas House, home of Marshfield’s first historian, was acquired by the Marshfield Historical Society (MHS) in 1997 and moved to the current site at 65 Webster Street. It houses a collection of objects and archives which the Society has been collecting since 1913. The architecture is a classic example of Cape Cod style.

It is both a museum and a research center. The museum is open the first Sunday of every month from 1 to 4 PM year round. Adults $5, MHS members free.

Within 100 yards south of the Marcia Thomas house, see the Winslow School House on the corner of Webster and Careswell Streets. This public school was built on that site in 1857, used until 1910, restored and opened to the public in 1968. It served as the headquarters for the Marshfield Historical Society until the Marcia Thomas House was opened in 1997.

Daniel Webster Estate & Heritage Ctr.

Daniel Webster, great Statesman, Lawyer, Orator, Senator and Secretary of State, lived in Marshfield from 1832 to his death in 1852. His original home burned in 1878 and his daughter-in-law Caroline White Webster built today’s Queen Anne-style mansion on the same foundation and incorporated many details in honor of her famous Father-in-law. The building is a fine example of work by Boston architect, William Gibbons Preston —completed in 1880 and recently restored to its original beauty.

Open to the public the first Sunday of each month.
