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.

Labor Day weekend came and went, the young people are back in school, and pumpkin patches throughout the region are in hyper-drive to produce the orange globes destined for pies and to feature the most creative and hideous expressions as jack o’ lanterns, to the delight and wonderment of all. That three day weekend, which for many marked the unofficial end of summer, also marked for the Society the end of public open hours until next May. Monthly meetings continue this month and in November, and the museum is open by appointment and donations to the Society will be welcome anytime by contacting the Leigh Webb, 934-8222.

To get to the Franklin Historical Society in the Webster/Tay house from Route 3, turn at this sign onto Holy Cross Road.
