Local History

The Hopkinton Public Library hosts special collections relating to local history and genealogy.

Researchers who wish to use the materials in the local history room must consult with an Adult Services Librarian, the Director, or a designated staff member. You are encouraged to make an appointment with Jessi McCarthy or Linda Connelly by calling 508-497-9777 or by emailing Jessi at jmccarthy@hopkintonma.gov.

Local History Room

The local history collection includes manuscripts, photographs, newspapers, pamphlets, books, maps, and some artifacts. These materials have been collected for many years and are being indexed in a "Finding Aid" by Hopkinton Library's archivist, Linda Connelly.

Our Treasure Room Policy defines access, handling, and other rules for materials in the Treasure Room. Additionally, you can preview some of the images in the Local History collection.
