All in-person events postponed to comply with COVID-19 rules.

To Friends of Cabot Historical Society:

Thank you for your past support of Cabot Historical Society.  We hope you are healthy in this difficult time.

We are canceling the 21st annual Cabot Apple Pie Festival. We hoped to hold the festival on October 17, 2020, but we cannot risk the health of the volunteers and visitors. We hope to chat face-to-face with you next year.

During this pandemic, we froze fundraising. We canceled our 4th of July open house at the Main Street museum. Many of our neighbors are struggling with financial setbacks now. The Board of Directors decided to suspend the $10 annual dues this year. Every annual member stays active until normal life returns.  

Until we can meet again, please remember our society. If you have old letters, diaries, and odd items from the past, please consider donating them when our museums reopen. We still have costs for the Main Street museum building and the West Hill one-room schoolhouse. If you are able to help, we would be grateful. THANK YOU!
