Freeport Historical Society

Welcome to Freeport Historical Society

Since 1969, Freeporters and area residents have volunteered their time as Trustees and Officers, Committee Leaders and members, and as volunteers in support of Freeport Historical Society.

Our mission remains: to collect and preserve; research and exhibit; and teach and advocate the history of Freeport.

We work to accomplish our mission by (1) making our archives and artifact collections accessible to students, scholars, Freeporters, and visitors for research and study; (2) “raiding” the Collections and presenting them to public via exhibits and other public programs to broaden and deepen Freeport’s history and by producing a quarterly newsletter; (3) stewarding and maintaining public access to two National Register properties-Pettengill Farm and Harrington House; advocating for the preservation of historic landscapes and buildings; and (4) collaborating with a range of organizations and individuals who care about the mission of keeping Freeport’s past present.
