ABOUT DEDHAM HISTORICAL SOCIETY & MUSEUM
The Dedham Historical Society & Museum (DHSM) preserves, collects, protects, and shares materials from the past through to the present day, creating educational programming and outreach to make history relevant and engaging for all audiences. While the DHSM’s focus is on the history of the area that is Dedham, before and after settlement, the DHSM also celebrates the influence that the people of Dedham, events, and industry have had on the development and growth of the nation.
