The Brewster Historical Society, established in 1964, collects and preserves the artifacts and history of Brewster to ensure their future accessibility. Its main building houses four permanent galleries, a special exhibition gallery and an extensive documents research area accessible by appointment. The Society also maintains a restored 18th century windmill and house and a blacksmith shop at Windmill Village on the grounds of Drummer Boy Park.
Soon, the museum will be moving to the Elijah Cobb House on Lower Road. The society recently purchased this historic sea captain’s home and is currently renovating it.
