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 hunting expedition site, to the first mills erected on the Sebasticook River that winds its way through the downtown area.

Members of PHS are local people with a common interest: Pittsfield!
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.
