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.

Spring Means It's Meeting Time
Ah, magnificent spring, the warmth for which we have all longed these months since the last leaves fell. And for the Franklin Historical Society, spring heralds another year of meetings, special events, and the camaraderie of a shared vision of preserving and interpreting the past. On Thursday, April 2 at 7 pm, at the Society's building at Webster Place (21 Holy Cross Rd.), the tradition of the Society's monthly meetings will begin anew. The offering will be a slide show of photos scanned from the Franklin Library's collection, a project completed last year, to compile a digital file of those images only the library has, so should anything happen to the originals, a permanent record could be kept by both the Society and the library. As the number of photos is considerable, the showing will be in two parts, the second to be announced in the near future. Read more in this month's newsletter.

This month's scanned photo is courtesy of Rob Sargent from the Franklin Library collection: A group photo of the DAR dedication ceremony of the Philip Call marker along Route 3, 1929.
