Brockton Historical Society Museums
The Brockton Historical Society is the principal overseer of the complex of museums on Rte. 27. The main buildings in the regional Heritage Center consist of a fire museum, a shoe museum, and an early Brockton residence called "The Homestead."
The Marciano, Edison and Shoe Museum exhibits are presently located within "The Homestead." Since its founding in 1969, the goal of the Brockton Historical Society has been to develop, encourage, and promote a general interest in, and appreciation of, the history of Brockton.
The organization maintains a large collection of significant artifacts and general memorabilia relating to every period of the extra-ordinary history of the city.
The Society is currently involved in a major effort to upgrade the overall facility. This endeavor will greatly increase the opportunities for public tours. To join the Brockton Historical Society, arrange for a special visit, or contribute to the fundraising effort please contact us at (508)583-1039 or click on Support the Society or Membership link for more information.
