What makes the Talbot Historical Society interesting and important? The objects we actively collect, maintain and share are important vehicles to document and represent the cultural history of the Talbot County community.

Since 1999, the Society has been cataloguing its collections using state-of-the-art Past Perfect Museum software. This allows our staff and visitors to search our collection by name, date or subject.
