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.
