Friends of the Library and Archives


Historic New England preserves and shares one of the region’s most important archival resources, with more than one million items documenting New England's cultural history. Our holdings of photographs, prints, architectural drawings, ephemera, books, and manuscripts are used by thousands of researchers each year.

Your Friends of the Library and Archives membership directly supports the important work of the Library and Archives.

Meet members with similar interests at curator-led tours and lectures.
