The Salisbury Historical Society has been awarded a Strategic Assessment grant which was made possible through the Massachusetts State Historic Records Advisory Board (MA SHRAB) and the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) grant program.  The Society is participating in the MA SHRAB Roving Archivist Program which connects historical records stewards with a trained professional archivist.  On March 19, 2024, archivist Thomas Doyle visited the Salisbury Historical Society's house at 16 Elm Street.  Mr. Doyle met with several members of the Society and discussed the archives of the Society, stressing the importance of collection development policies, disaster planning, and preservation.  Following the discussion, a tour of the house was conducted with emphasis on the archives.   A report will soon follow with a list of recommendations.
