Our members are the lifeblood of the Society. Each and every one of us shares an interest in the Town of Eastham and its heritage – hopefully you will too. By becoming a member of the Eastham Historical Society, you will be helping to promote public awareness of our rich local history and encourage the preservation of our museums and historical documents relating to Eastham. Consider volunteering as a Guide with Eastham Historical Society. Guides have new and exciting opportunities to learn the history of Eastham and its founders. Volunteer Guides get to interact with visitors from both near and far at our various Museums; The 1869 Schoolhouse, Swift-Daley House, Dill Beach Camp and Ranlett Tool Museum. They are a treasure trove to see, explore and share with others. As a member, you can simply enjoy what they have to offer or join other volunteers and participate in the many projects and events scheduled throughout the year. This could be an opportunity to learn, grow and contribute to both the Society and our Community.  You will also receive all our newsletters and email blasts.
