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
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
also go to other locations for field trips (to libraries, museums, historical
societies, preservation organizations, etc.) or to see map exhibits being held
in other institutions.
The schedule page of this web site provides information
about upcoming events. The page will be updated whenever a new meeting or field
trip has been scheduled. On that page you can also find information about some
of the past events held by the Society.

Society members. These are not events sponsored by the Boston
Map Society, but they have some cartographic aspect that members
