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.

Winter Keeps Going and So Do We

Despite being closed for the winter, the Society continues to see more and more gifts to enhance not just the numbers of items in the collections, but to broaden the “story” those objects tell, and attempt to solve the mysteries that so often accompany many of the photos and artifacts.​ So no matter what the time of year or how grisly the weather is outside, the work of the Society never stops. 2018 promises to be an exciting year, and anyone reading this may certainly be a part of it, as joining the Society is as easy as filling out an application and sending in the $10 yearly fee.​
