|The Thomaston Historical Society is an active group with many offerings including meetings
with interesting guest speakers that are open to the public free of charge; a long list of publications in which they have been involved
by either publishing or supplying the historic material for their writing; celebrating the birthday of General Henry Knox each July in cooperation
with The General Henry Knox Museum; opening one of the many historic houses in Thomaston for two days of public viewing during the month of December
called "Home for the Holidays" and running a very interesting museum where one can learn the history of the town beginning with the first exploration
by an Englishman in 1605.
There are extensive archives for research of local families, events and businesses, war records, many
photographs and paintings, maps and memorabilia dating back to the Colonial era.
The museum is usually open September through May on Tuesdays, 2 to 4 p.m. and in the summer on Tuesdays and Thursdays 2 to 4 p.m.
However, because of the coronavirus pandemic, the museum is currently open only by appointment.
