Hogan Campus Center, College of Holy Cross, Worcester

The 12th annual Massachusetts History Conference was a day filled with opportunities to meet, network, and collaborate with others in public history in the Commonwealth. ”We” are local historical societies, libraries, town clerk offices, historic houses, larger historical organizations, and national historical parks, independent professionals and academic historians. In our state, local history is national history. We not only educate Americans about the Revolution and the industrial revolution, we tell the stories and safeguard ancestral records of a significant percentage of American families. We work to put history on the map in the Commonwealth. Together our efforts can be more successful in preservation, outreach, and educating our visitors and participants about the complex economic, social, political, and cultural issues that dominated our past and shape our present.

The conference is widely celebrated as the best networking and skill-sharing opportunity for historians of our state culture.
