Additional information

History Cambridge started in 1905 as the Cambridge Historical Society. Today we have a new name, a new look, and a whole new mission.

We strive to be the most relevant and responsive historical voice in Cambridge. We do that by recognizing that every person in our city knows something about Cambridge's history, and their knowledge matters. We support people in sharing history with each other—and weaving their knowledge together—by offering them the floor, the mic, the platform. We shed light where historical perspectives are needed. We listen to our community. We live by the ideal that history belongs to everyone. 

Our theme for 2021 is How Does Cambridge Mend? Make history with us at historycambridge.org
