Founded in 1997, The Lewis H. Latimer Society & Museum established in Chelsea, Massachusetts, reflects much of the personality and vision of its namesake, Lewis Howard Quincy Latimer. The Society has embarked on the journey to collect and preserve materials which redress the historical balance and representation of the African-American community of Chelsea. The Latimer Society’s mission is to locate, collect, analyze, organize and preserve African-American historical contributions used to educate, empower and interpret in Chelsea, Suffolk County, and the nation.
