Denny Lawhern, Belmont Historian and past president of the Historical Society, passed away in March of 2022. We are raising funds to dedicate a park bench in his memory. Please consider making a donation here.

Thank you.


The Belmont Historical Society is pleased to announce we will be reopening the History Room to the public. We have been closed for three years due to the Covid 19 pandemic during which we inventoried and remodeled our facility and exhibits.

We will be open Sunday, April 30th for the Save The Music Festival.

Additionally, we will have an official reopening event in May. Stay tuned for further details!


The Belmont Historical Society was founded in 1985 as a non-profit organization dedicated to collecting and preserving artifacts of Belmont's history., We are located in the back of the Manor House in Twin Pines Park. Handicapped access is available in the front of the building.

While some of our archive has been digitized and is available online, the majority of our collection (photographs, articles, oral histories, etc) is stored in the History Room, which is available for browsing during open hours. Belmont (McCarthy) and Heritage of the Wooded Hills (Dewing), both written by local residents about Belmont's past, are available for purchase.
