The Scituate Town
Archives is the depository for all Town Records.
These include records from 1636 to present.
The mission of the Archives is to provide the Town of Scituate, the citizens
of the Town and the general public availability by identifying, acquiring,
arranging, describing, preserving, and making accessible--for the use of Town
agencies, scholars, students, and the general public--the records of enduring
value created or received by Town agencies and elected officials.
The Town of Scituate Archives serves government record creators and users,
providing education and guidance on records' issues, conservation, research,
and records management.
