The Beverly Historical Society has been preserving and caring for Beverly’s past since 1891 and the 1781 John Cabot House has been our headquarters since 1892. In addition to a collection of nearly a million objects and documents related to Beverly and the North Shore of Massachusetts, the Society preserves and interprets three historic properties, the Balch House, Hale Farm, and the Cabot House, and engages the community in a variety of programs.

The collections of the Beverly Historical Society are of national, regional and local significance, with a strong concentration on papers pertaining to the American Revolution and the maritime history of the early republic, and regional transportation history, as well as an important assortment of weapons, textiles, ceramics, furniture and paintings.
