Welcome To
The Westford Museum & Historical Society

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 varied 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 Store page.

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.

Westford Knight Tour

Knight SiteThursday 19 May, 7 p.m. - We will visit the Westford Knight carving and Westford Boat Stone, purportedly evidencing Scottish exploration of America in 1399. We will also view the related exhibit at the Westford Museum.

Park at Abbot School parking lot, 25 Depot Street. From there it is a short walk (50 yards) on a sidewalk to view the Westford Knight carving. We will then return to our cars and drive to the JV Fletcher Library to view the Boat Stone. From the library we will walk across the Town Common to the Westford Museum.

This event is part of Freedom's Way Hidden Treasures Week.


Welcome to Graniteville

Graniteville Tour

Saturday 21 May, 10 a.m. - The Westford Historical Society will host a guided walking tour of the Graniteville Historic District in Westford. First known for its granite quarries and then the home of the Abbot Worsted Company, this industrial and residential village still contains many historic buildings associated with the worsted mills and Sargent machine shops.

Meet at the United Methodist Church in Graniteville. A bus will be provided for those with mobility issues.

A longer self-guided driving tour is available here and will be available in paper format on the day of the tour.

This event is part of Freedom's Way Hidden Treasures Week.
