The Attleboro Historic Preservation Society

Promoting and preserving Attleboro’s historical treasures

The Attleboro Historic Preservation Society, Inc. (AHPS) was organized in 1999 by a group of citizens concerned with the future of the East Attleborough Academy Building located at 28 Sanford Street in downtown Attleboro.
