A Message To Our Community

Out of an abundance of caution both the Society offices and the Tollhouse Shop are currently closed for in-person visits.

The mission of the Wellesley Historical Society is to serve as the historical resource center for the town of Wellesley; to provide educational programs; to collect, interpret, and display materials pertaining to the history of the town and its people; to inspire public involvement in and appreciation of its heritage and culture.
