Partnership Grant Spotlight

Since the late 1800s, the Topsfield Historical Society has organized and published over 34 volumes of material documenting significant events in the community. With the objective of making Topsfield's local history available to a much larger public audience, the Society initiated the "Digital History Online Project." The primary focus of the Essex Heritage grant funded work was the creation of a new website and portal  with links to the society's digitized collections, to Topsfield-related material available on other websites, and to robust search tools to access information from all sources.
Heritage Education Update: Salem at SEA

Over 30 English language learning (ELL) students worked with Salem State University, Essex Heritage and other city partners this summer to serve their community as they gained literacy skills in this year's Salem at SEA program . Check out the video , created by Sean Hennessy Productions, that showcases their meaningful service project work!
