OUR TOWN, OUR STORY

 

Reed Homestead

The Townsend Historical Society was formed in 1896 to record and remember the story of Townsend, Massachusetts. In 1972, the Society incorporated as a non-profit organization and moved into its present-day home, the Reed Homestead, originally built by Oliver Reed in 1809 and home to four generations of Reeds. During the 1980s, the Society acquired several additional properties around the Harbor Pond. Today the assemblage comprises an "early industrial village" in Townsend Harbor with the Reed House as the central home to the Society's collections.
