Historical Resources of Southampton

Our collection of historical books, memorabilia, memoirs, and photographs may be viewed in the library. Some historical information may be obtained by borrowing in-house flash drives which will contain extensive information and photographs of the history and activities of the Town of Southampton.

Included are several first-hand accounts by our residents about life in Southampton, as well as some interesting reports of their adventures during the Civil War and World War II. 

For your convenience, we have provided here a selection of some of the more requested documents with links to popular resources that are available at the library. More information may be found by searching the CWMARS Online Catalog or Digital Commonwealth websites. Since our Historical Collection is always growing, stop by often, we will be adding to this website regularly.
