The Shrewsbury Historical Society, Inc. was formed in 1971. At that time the Society had no place for a museum. In 1984, the Museum opened on the second floor of the Shrewsbury Library, a former one-room schoolhouse. Through the years, as the collection grew, the members hoped for a larger area. After negotiations with the Shrewsbury Community Church, the church building on Route 103 in Cuttingsville became the new museum. It was originally built in 1842, and renovated in 1890. A Grand Opening of the Museum was held in August of 1999. 
The Society now boasts approximately 80 paid members of which 20 are active members. Displayed in the museum are 19th century household items and furniture, costumes, photographs, books, diaries, toys and other town memorabilia. The collection also included geneology, video and audio tapes of townspeople and special events, and current Shrewsbury history in scrapbook form.
