The Old Bridgewater Historical Society is a private organization, started in 1894, dedicated to the collection, preservation, and publication of history relating to the original Bridgewater area, which includes the towns of East Bridgewater, West Bridgewater, Bridgewater and the city of Brockton. Residents are encouraged to drop by the OBHS Memorial Building during open hours (Mon - 5 to 8 pm and Wed – 12 to 3 pm) to investigate all the treasures stored within!

The Society also maintains the Keith House, or Keith Parsonage, located at 199 River Street in West Bridgewater. Built in 1662 as a parsonage, this was the home of Bridgewater’s first minister, Reverend James Keith. It was his home from 1664 until his death in 1719. It is operated as a colonial home museum and is open to the public on Sunday afternoons during the warmer months of the year.

OBHS currently has 325 members living in 27 states. Membership applications are available on the OBHS website, at
