Historical Commission

Marion Historical Commission Mission Statement 

The Marion Historical Commission, with the Town’s adoption of MA General Laws Part I Title VII Chapter 40 Section 8D, has been established for the primary purpose of identifying and protecting the Town’s historic resources. This includes buildings, structures, objects and sites of national, state, or local significance based on an understanding of their historic, architectural, and/or archeological importance.

The primary responsibility of the Marion Historical Commission is to coordinate all community-wide historic preservation planning on behalf of the Town. This includes educating the public about the identification of historic resources and the importance of preserving and protecting such resources. The Commission also serves as a public advocate to advise the Select Board and other local agencies regarding matters of preservation, protection and redevelopment of historic buildings, structures and sites which may be under consideration by said boards.
