Hatfield Historical Museum
The Hatfield Historical Museum holds an extensive collection of archives and memorabilia from the 17th to the 20th centuries that help tell the story of Hatfield, Massachusetts, founded in 1670. This digital collection -- including deeds from as early as the late 1660s, letters or notes written by John Pynchon and G. Washington, and 78 Howes Brothers images of Hatfield -- moves a good portion of our essentially "hidden" collection from our small town, not-yet handicapped accessible museum to the wide world. This work was made possible in part by Community Preservation Act grants from the Town of Hatfield.

The Hatfield Historical Museum is located on the second floor of Dickinson Memorial Hall, a historic brick building built in 1894 that faces the Connecticut River. To visit us in person, please check our website for hours.
