Local History Collections

Frederic C. Adams Public Library, multiple views

The Library’s Local History Collections (LHC) are housed in the Frey-Hoeg Historical Collections Room in the Adams Center, formerly the Frederic C. Adams Public Library, at 33 Summer Street.

The Adams Center is closed due to the pandemic, and access to the LHC has been sharply curtailed by cuts to the Library’s staff budget. You may contact the Archivist at 781-831-6277 or history@kingstonpubliclibrary.org with any research requests. Thanks in advance for your patience!
