To get to the Franklin Historical Society in the Webster/Tay house from Route 3, turn at this sign onto Holy Cross Road. 
The Historical Society is then the first building on the right.

Another season of regular meetings and special events has come and gone, with the end marked in the traditional manner by a gathering of members and friends to celebrate the coming holidays with a resplendent pot-luck dinner. Now is the time, during the winter hiatus, for the officers and board of directors to take stock of the successes of the past on which to build, and set new goals for the Society to continue to grow and fulfill its mission statement in the coming twelve months. See you in April when the Society reconvenes at its first 2020 regular meeting.

Franklin Historical Society-- Franklin, New Hampshire

The Franklin Historical Society was incorporated in 1981 to study and preserve the history of Franklin.

Housed in the Historic Webster Tay/House, a part of Daniel Webster's "Elms Farm" from 1799-1855, later the New Hampshire Orphanage from 1871-1959, and now the Webster Place Recovery Center, the Society meets on the first Thursday of the month from April through November.
