What is the Atheneum Society of Wilbraham all about?

The Society was incorporated in 1963 as a non-profit organization by a group of concerned townspeople.   Their purpose was to form a permanent local group to preserve artifacts and memorabilia relating to the people and history of Wilbraham.

The operation of our organization is funded entirely by the dues, gifts, and activities of our membership, which is open to all interested persons from Wilbraham and other communities.

Mission Statement: The Atheneum Society of Wilbraham exists to preserve local history and culture within the context of the town’s historic Old Meeting House and Hearse House museums to share knowledge, educate and involve our local community.

Value Statement: We value the camaraderie of community and our accomplishments as preservationists and historic property caretakers by interpreting historic collections and artifacts through meaningful exhibits and maintaining our historic structures. We engage in educational, social and interactive programs to preserve the organization and ensure that local history is conserved for future generations.
