The Pittsfield Historical Society
- PHS & its Members
- The Pittsfield Historical Society was formed in
1983 in a community effort to preserve and protect some
of the town's most valuable assets: its history and
artifacts. Pittsfield's past is rich in the history of a
mill town, beginning in its earliest days as a wilderness

- Some members offer a significant and substantial
offering to our history; others quietly affect the
background musings. We listen to others' impossible
dreams, (and create a few of our own), lend a hand with
repairs, unravel mysteries, research genealogy, catalog
artifacts and pictures, and unobtrusively capture the
essence of a part of our New England heritage. Whatever
your capability, your interest is the key.
- Help us write the history of Pittsfield!
- This site is constantly growing. In these pages you will find several locations
listed with little or no history given. If you know even parts of the history
of these locations, please share with us what you know so we can better fill
in the history of Pittsfield. Also see the History of Your Place page.
- Join the Society
- Hoping to preserve the
way we were, PHS collects bits and
pieces of Pittsfield history largely through donated
artifacts, photographs, newspapers, family scrapbooks and
diaries. By looking at and preserving the way it was, we
aspire to keep the spirit of many alive. The local
community is wealthy in history scarcely uncovered of a
small frontier town, to bustling mill town to the safe,
clean New England town we know today.
