Welcome to the Westfield Historical Society! Our mission is to preserve, interpret, and encourage interest in history, Westfield, and its residents through educational efforts and community outreach programs.
The Westfield Historical Society is based in the Reeve History & Cultural Resource Center, located in an 1870's home at 314 Mountain Avenue. The Society also owns the Miller - Cory House Museum located at 614 Mountain Avenue. It also has an extensive collection, stored in our archives which is open to the public. For visiting information please see the left side bar of this webpage.
The Miller - Cory Museum is open most Sundays from September to June except for holidays. It is also open during the week by appointment only. A listing of Miller - Cory events is available on the Miller - Cory House Museum website. The circa-1740 Miller-Cory House was acquired by the Society in 1971. Located at 614 Mountain Avenue, it is operated as a “living museum” and staffed by Miller Cory House Museum volunteers.
Both the Reeve House and the Miller-Cory House are registered as national and state historic sites. In 1985, the Reeve brothers donated their home to the town with the hope that it would someday be a permanent home for the Westfield Historical Society.
