Our Archives Room, where our Massachusetts Cultural Resource Information System (MACRIS) files and genealogical records are kept, is available to the public on the first Saturday of every month, from 9 AM to Noon, or by appointment.


 The Egremont Historical Commission (EHC) was established in 1974. It oversees a local history museum and Town Archives Room and performs its civic duties under the Massachusetts Historical Commission. It is located on the second floor of the 1830’s Mt. Everett Academy building, shared with the Egremont Free Library, in the heart of the National Register Historic District of South Egremont Village. Among other responsibilities, the EHC is charged with preserving collections in the Archives Room that encompass historical books, town records and documents, maps, photographic prints, oil paintings, local genealogy records, and other Egremont treasures.
