The Boston Map Society is a group of map enthusiasts. It was founded in 1994 to bring together people who like to study, visit, use, collect, and preserve maps. Though most members live in the New England area, membership in the Society is open anyone, anywhere, with an interest in cartography.
Most of the meetings of the Society are held at the Boston Public Library, home of the Norman B. Leventhal Map & Education Center, and at the Harvard Map Collection. We also go to other locations for field trips (to libraries, museums, historical societies, preservation organizations, etc.) and to see map exhibits being held at other institutions.
