Marblehead Historical Commission
Catalog of Archive Holdings
Marblehead is a unique and historic town - it's places, structures, people and stories tell the history of New England in a microcosm. The Historical Commission's mission is to identify, preserve and protect Marblehead's historical assets - it's places, artifacts and stories, while making these accessible to all. We want to educate the public about and publicize Marblehead's proud history.
The Marblehead Historical Commission Archives contain many objects, artifacts and photographs which have been donated to the town of Marblehead. These items reflect the diverse Marblehead history and its early ties to the sea as well as its citizens' involvement in the founding and defense of our country.
This web site will allow you to view many of our archives, along with an image of most items. The web site is divided into four "Exhibits":
1) Objects; 2) Photos; 3) Archives; 4) Library. You may perform searches to find archive items, or simply browse through each Exhibit.
To browse an Exhibit, click on the photo representing that group of items in the vertical column to the left.
To conduct a search, click on the "Search" button at the bottom of this page. Searches may also be conducted from within each Exhibit. Search results will open in a new web page.
