To get to the Franklin Historical Society in the Webster/Tay house from Route 3, turn at this sign onto Holy Cross Road. 
The Historical Society is then the first building on the right.

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.

Franklin Historical Society-- Franklin, New Hampshire

Based upon the success of the September gathering, the Society will move ahead with its regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday, October 7th, at 7 pm, in the Webster/Tay building. The presentation will focus on the Proctor family, with a brief history of members’ contributions to the city in which they lived, and a slideshow of vintage images of the Proctors and the photos taken of their last home and property prior to its being set ablaze as a training exercise for the Franklin Fire Department in 2018. Guest speakers, and members of the Society, will be John Benham and Leigh Webb.
