Local history is only meaningful if it is remembered.
On Cape Cod, former Orleans High School graduate (class of 1952), and subsequent teacher, George S. Sherman, Jr. (Sam to his friends) recognized that fact and initiated an online "scrapbook" of people, places, things and events in order to keep these memories alive.
The Orleans Historical Society recognizes the importance of preserving our local history. It also recognizes the importance of continuing what "Sam" started so many years ago.
We invite you to click on the "Scrapbook Galleries" tab above and look through our galleries. Learn some history or refresh some memories.
Feel free to submit your own memories.
