    The Agawam Historical Association hosts speakers on a variety of topics at its regular meetings and Annual Banquet. The Association operates the Agawam Historical & Fire House Museum at 35 Elm Street, and the Thomas Smith House (c1757) at 251 North West Street in Feeding Hills.

Your dues and your active involvement are urgently needed in our efforts to preserve Agawam’s past for future generations.  We thank you for your interest and look forward to your visit. All Association meetings are free and open to the public.

A Museum of Everyday Life
   The Thomas Smith House was built in 1757 by house wright Thomas Smith on land originally owned by Mathew Noble. Noble was one of the towns earliest settlers to be given a land grant by William Pychon in 1715.
   Untouched by modernization, the Georgian gambrel remains today as it did in the 1700’s. A virtual time capsule of the lifestyle of the 1700’s.
  The Agawam Historical and Fire House Museum.
Built as a Fire Station in 1918, This building was converted to a Museum by Association members and volunteer firemen after the town built a new station nearby. The first floor contains antique fire engines and apparatus and the second floor (with elevator access) is a display area for the Association’s exhibits.
