The library will be closed on Monday, April 15th for the Patriots Day holiday. We will be open our usual hours on Saturday and Sunday.

Historical Room

The Historical Room contains books and documents that can be helpful in genealogy research. Books on Marshfield and local history, cemetery plot listings, town census/residential lists, limited vital records, town reports, and more. We also have a special Daniel Webster Collection. While the Historical Room is open when the library is open, we ask that you call ahead to schedule an appointment if you wish to use the room so that we can best assist you in finding the information that you're looking for.

We are currently organizing and updating our collection and our processes and procedures. We will update this page with more detailed information about the Historical Room's collections. In the meantime, take a look at some of our most used collections:
