There has been a lot of talk about preserving our heritage of late. Now, here’s an opportunity to explore it.

If you haven’t been through Southborough’s Historical Museum, you can take a look this weekend. The Historical Society is opening the museum door to visitors on Sunday afternoon.

They are also welcoming anyone who wants to help out:

Our town’s little gem of a Historical Museum at 12 Common Street has been closed most of the winter, but will welcome visitors Sunday, April 12th from 1:00 – 3:00 PM. The building first served as a school in 1860 at the intersection of Flagg and Deerfoot Roads, then moved to the current site in 1894.

There is a treasure trove of interesting material and there are exhibits that will have you saying “Wow – I didn’t know that!”.

All are welcome, and we would be grateful to any history buffs that care to help out with staffing.
