In 2020, the Society  purchased 120 glass negative slides of Marstons Mills from auction to add to its archives.   They were taken between 1905 and 1915 by a local photographer.  The slides were subsequently made into photographic positives for all to appreciate.  The positive below is of Captain Oliver Crocker in a sleigh.

Society Member Larry Dick has contributed a fine collection of documents related to the Barnstable County Fair, particularly from the years when the Fair was held in the Mills. Larry’s parents were co-presidents of the Fair in the past.  Items include color posters announcing the Fair from nearly every year of its operation in the Mills, bumper stickers, small items advertising the Fair, and photographs of Fair events.
