The Westford Museum is located near
the historic town Common at 2 Boston Road in Westford,
Massachusetts. The office is at 4 Boston Road. The
Museum houses a wonderful collection of artifacts
typical of small towns. If your interest is genealogy,
be sure and contact us as we have excellent materials
covering many old Westford families. And if
old Westford houses interest you we have house histories
as well. We also have an almost complete collection
of Westford Academy yearbooks, many photographs of
students and teachers, and other academy memorabilia.
If you are looking for a gift that is uniquely Westford,
be sure and check our Museum
Before you visit, double-check the Museum
Calendar as there are a few holiday Sundays when
we are closed. If you're doing research don't
hesitate to send an e-mail or call ahead so we can prepare
for your visit. We look forward to meeting you.
The 2014 Stone Wall calendars have arrived in our shop. There is both a wall calendar and a desk calendar, something for everyone.

The Westford Museum's theme for 2013-14 is "Forge Village: Its People & Places; Farms, Forges, Fiber & Families"! We're planning an exhibit, a walking tour, a photo contest, and much more! If anyone has things they'd like to loan to the museum, please contact us. Anyone who wants to be involved is welcome!
News about the 2014 Photo contest: The theme will be (of course) FORGE VILLAGE. Photos should be taken within the Forge Village Historic District. We're adding an adult category to the contest. There will be a $5 entry fee/adult photo, but student entries will remain free.
Entries will be due in Monday 28 April 2014, and awards will be announced on Sunday 4 May. Details to come.
