The DHSM archives has been referred to as one of the most important in New England. The archives contain collections relating to 600 families from Dedham dating from the 1600s to the present.
Most of the archival materials have not been digitized and are not represented in this Finding Aid. As Finding Aids are created, they will be added to this database. Please contact the archivist with questions about specific families at firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition to material related to families, the DHSM holds records on industry, organizations, businesses, trades and occupations, buildings, town history, education, genealogical material, deeds, photographs, drawings, maps, broadsides, and more.
