Northborough Historical Society seeks coronavirus stories

Northborough – We are living through a historic moment as we cope with the raging coronavirus and the dreadful disease it brings, COVID-19.  As keepers and collectors of our town’s history, the Northborough Historical Society would like to collect and preserve your personal reflections, daily experiences, stories and photos of this pandemic’s effect on the community and your life. These memories are history in the making and will give future generations a look back at this unprecedented time in our town, state and country.

If you would like to join us in building this collection, please mail or email your contributions to the society or use the drop-off box at the Archive door, in the ell at the rear of the building, 52 Main St. We will store them in our archive files for years to come. 

We would also like your permission to share them as we may decide to do so in a future exhibit, in our newsletter, on our website or on our social media.

Please include your name, address and years in Northborough with your submission along with our permission form.  For a copy of the form or additional information, email Kathleen Pierce, historian, or Ellen Racine, curator, at the society website.

The mailing address is Northborough Historical Society, P.O. Box 661, Northborough, MA 01532. The email address is [email protected]

We look forward to your participation in this history-saving project.
