Museum & Library


Museum:

Welcome to the museum of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts. The Museum entrance is located directly across the hall from the elevator. The museum is open to the public weekdays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. The main floor space is approximately 40 feet wide by 75 feet in length

On display are uniforms, firearms, swords, artifacs, memoribilia and other relics from all engagements involving members of the Company. The museum carefully preserves much of the materials which have a direct bearing on the long history of the Company. Included are swords of of its Commanders, example of the armorer's art, uniforms, and documents of the most interesting association and value.

Also on display are awards and gifts received by the Company.

Library:

The Military Library contains the valuable records of the Company and many books of historical value, relating to the career of the Company and the military art. The same room contains the priceless collection of the Company's Tours of Duty

Soon after the formation of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company Museum and Library, members of the Company donated books, records, and manuscripts covering the years of the Company's existence. In particular, COL Willis W. Stover, Captain Commanding in 1917, left the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company Library an extensive military history collection in 1941.

Today we continually receive appropriate dontations of mlitary hsitories and currently have over 2800 volumes of mlitary and histoircal nature.
