2022 - 2023 Society Events

As the Shrewsbury Historical Society transitions to in-person meetings at the 1830 Brick School, it was a Board decision that there will be a pause in providing refreshments, as there may be safety concerns. We invite you to bring your water bottle or your own coffee for the few first meetings as our ability to provide refreshments safely is assessed. Thank you for your understanding.
