Welcome to the North Attleborough Historical Commission Web Site! The Town of North Attleborough is very fortunate to have four very active groups involved in the stewardship of our historical sites: the North Attleborough Historical Society, The Falls Fire Barn Preservation Society, the Mount Hope Cemetery Association and our Historical Commission. All are private non-profit groups except for our Commission.
We are a volunteer board governed by Massachusetts General Law Chapter 40, Section 8D and Town By Law, Article VIII, Section 3. We are volunteers appointed by the Town Manager to Identify, Evaluate and Protect the Historical and Archaeological Assets of our Town and we take this mission seriously.
Enjoy this web site and feel free to email us with comments and suggestions to make it a user friendly site that is inviting to people of all ages and who will come back again and again. As time permits this site will be updated and become entertaining and more informative. This is a great site to learn about the exciting history in North Attleborough!
Volunteers are always welcome to assist with our projects.
Our General Fund budget is $3,000 for this fiscal year and we have limited Revolving Fund budget line items for specific purposes. CIP Funds have been designated for the Mann Burial Ground Restoration project.
We take advantage of matching federal grants administered through the Massachusetts Historical Commission to fund the Holmes School Restoration, the 2017 Townwide Historic Preservation Plan, and the 2020 Townwide Archaeological Survey and Plan. An Endowment Fund for the Holmes School was established as part of the restoration plan and is subject to use approval by the Massachusetts Historical Commission.
Private donations have also assisted with the restoration of the Holmes School and the Mann Burial Ground Preservation Plan.
Anyone considering making a monetary donation to the Historical Commission for a specific purpose may contact the office of the Town Administrator regarding the process.
