The Mendon Historical Society is a nonprofit organization created in 1896 and incorporated in 1909. It is dedicated to protecting and preserving Mendon’s documents, buildings and items of historical significance.
With our new space, we will be able to highlight different parts of our collection, which documents much of Mendon’s 352-year history. Currently highlighted are an exhibit of the History of Southwick Zoo with items on loan from Justine Brewer whose father opened the zoo in 1963; a display of the work of accomplished artist and Mendon resident Doris Daniels Cox; a presentation of the Dairy Industry in Mendon; and Ladies Lifestyles featuring many of the museum’s original artifacts.
The Museum, which offers free admission, is
open Tuesdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.;. For appointments or for a group
Sundays from 12 noon to 4 p.m.; and by appointment
