About

The Talbot Historical Society (THS) was founded in 1954, just two years after the opening of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. Seeking a balance between growth and preservation, the Society stands among the organizations formed by citizens to preserve the heritage of the Eastern Shore.

What makes the Talbot Historical Society interesting and important? The objects we actively collect, maintain and share are important vehicles to document and represent the cultural history of the Talbot County community.

Since 1999, the Society has been cataloguing its collections using state-of-the-art Past Perfect Museum software. This allows our staff and visitors to search our collection by name, date or subject.
