Stoneham Historical Society & Museum

Our museum collection includes many unique artifacts, documents, newspapers and thousands of photographs relating to Stoneham’s past. We appreciate the many generous donations from local institutions and private citizens that have made it so remarkable. We encourage those who are interested in seeing our collection to visit us during our Open House days or make an appointment to tour the museum. Please note that the Open House for August has been canceled due to the renovations on the Museum.
