The Boston Map Society was founded in 1994 to bring together people with an interest in collecting, studying, using, and preserving maps. Though most members live in the New England area, membership in the Society is open anyone, anywhere, with an interest in cartography.
Most of the meetings of the Society will be held at the Boston Public Library, home of the Norman B. Leventhal Map Center. However the Society will also go to other locations for field trips (to libraries, museums, historical societies, preservation organizations, etc.) or to see map exhibits being held at other institutions.
The schedule page provides information about upcoming events. The page will be updated whenever a new meeting or field trip has been scheduled. On the Past Events page you can find information about some of the past events held by the Society.
The membership page gives information on how to become a member of the Society. The benefits of membership (including a subscription to the Boston Map Society newsletter) are also described. On this page you can find a link to a downloadable membership application.
The contact page tells you how to get in touch with somebody from the Society. The page also lists the current officers and board of directors of the Society.
