Since its inception over 100 years ago, the Topsfield Historical Society’s mission has been to preserve and publish Topsfield's historical records. We have published thirty-four volumes of these materials over the course of our existence. Under a Commonwealth funded program for digitizing State records, the Boston Public LIbrary has scanned all thirty-four volumes and made them available on

Initially we are providing this simple list of links to each volume. Future plans include online search terms and direct access to each volume. Future stages of the project include providing digital access to material still only available in the Society’s physical archives and curated online exhibits to promote public awareness and interest in our materials.
