Welcome to Westwood Historical!

The Westwood Historical Society strives to collect and tell the personal human stories of ingenuity, determination, struggles, courage, strength and insight of those who molded our collective past.  Our hope is that in these stories you discover, or rediscover, the threads that make up our community’s rich tapestry.   You may even notice how modern and contemporary many of those stories seem today! Check out the events and programs.  Contact us if you would like to help or if you have stories or photos you wish to share!
