The Marshfield Historical Society is located at the Old Schoolhouse Commons and meetings are held the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 PM. We meet in The Hap Hayward History Center, which is located on the second floor of the library and features custom display cases, an enhanced meeting area and ample storage for our collection of local history artifacts.

Anyone interested in documenting and preserving the historical resources in Marshfield is encouraged to attend our meetings. We welcome donations of photos, documents and historical items.

Marshfield Story Project was created in partnership with Jaquith Public Library and Marshfield Historical Society with funding from a grant awarded by the Institute for Museums and Library Services. (Grant #LG-27-19-0240-19)

During the 2-year grant period we recorded video interviews of local residents and created an archive of Marshfield photos on, the Vermont Historical Society website. We also created a Marshfield Story Project YouTube Channel for sharing our interviews.
