The American Antiquarian Society, founded in 1812, is the third oldest historical society in the United States and the first to be national in its purpose and the scope of its collections. Located in Worcester, Massachusetts, AAS maintains a library of American history and culture in order to collect, preserve, and make available for study the printed and manuscript record of the United States through the year 1876. The library's collection of materials printed in what is now the United States from the establishment of a press in 1639 through 1820 is the best in the world, and its holdings of American printed materials dating from 1821 through 1876 are among the strongest anywhere. Tours are held Wednesdays at 3:00 p.m.
