The Keep Homestead Museum
35 Ely Road, Monson, MA 01057


When Myra Keep Lovell Moulton died in 1988, the last of a long line of Keeps in Monson, she willed her property, its contents and an endowment fund to the town with two stipulations:

    "It must be opened to the public on one day during the first year after acceptance of the property."

    "It must be named The Keep Homestead Museum."

She was an avid collector and her button collection is considered one of the largest in the US.

She mastered many forms of needlework and many of her works are on display, as are examples of her work in oil, water color and ceramics.

History was also important to Myra and the museum contains many examples of this interest: history of her family, her town, her church, rocks and minerals of the area -- to name only a few.

Open House: 1st Sunday of each month 1:00-3:30pm from early April to December.

Mailing Address: 110 Main St., Monson, MA 01057
