Our Collections

Our extensive collections of maps, artifacts, documents, paintings and photos could fill a museum!  A portion of these collections are on display at our current location in the Howland Center on Main. The remaining vast inventory of historical items are in storage until we are able to acquire a museum location--more than enough to have an extensive showing of Beacon's past, over 300 years of history! Stop in to discuss our collections with our Historians and staff.  If you have any items to donate to the BHS call or visit our Donations Page.  Also take a moment to visit our New Home section to see how you can help.
