The Dorset Historical Society was incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in 1963. The Society’s purposes are: To discover and collect materials that will help establish or illustrate the history of Dorset, Vermont; to provide for the preservation of relevant collections; to exhibit archival materials and disseminate historical information; and to educate members of the Society and the public. Toward these ends, the Dorset Historical Society collects and maintains artifacts, art, photographs, documents, books, manuscripts, and genealogical records pertinent to Dorset and its environs from the time the town was chartered in 1761 to the present.

Starting June 1st, The Museum is Open to the Public Wednesday to Friday 10:00 – 4:00 and Saturdays 12:00 – 1:00 Through the Summer
