Our goals are to preserve the history of Hawley, MA which was founded in 1792. We also aim to gather information about Hawley and to educate others about the history of Hawley.  Hawley is a small community of about 300 people in a very rural setting in the hills of western Massachusetts.  The town is somewhat divided by the topography of the area.
