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, the Society will be open all three days, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday from 10 am to 2 pm, before closing for the season (the museum can still be visited by appointment by calling Leigh Webb at 934-8222, and donations are accepted all year long). The Society will continue to meet monthly in October and November, with enticing programs, and will end the year with its traditional pot-luck Christmas dinner in December.
