Online Collection

Our Online Collection is made up of over 2,000 items from Memorial Hall Museum. This collection is comprised of artifacts, documents, maps, photographs and books from the Connecticut River Valley region of Massachusetts. The Collection spans a vast sweep of history: from the area's earliest native american inhabitants to more recent early twentieth-century times.
