UPPER PEMIGEWASSET HISTORICAL SOCIETY AND MUSEUM

The Society and Museum is located in Lincoln, NH, at the gateway to the White Mountain National Forest at the western end of the Kancamagus Highway, or, when approaching from the South, at Exit 32 off I-93. We are only minutes away from Franconia Notch State Park.

The Society was founded in 1985, in response to change in industry, sudden growth in our communities, and an upsurge in culture amidst a ripening economy. Lincoln, chartered in 1764, is no longer a paper mill town since the startup of  Loon Mt. Ski Area in 1965. Tourism is now the major industry in Lincoln and continues in Woodstock, chartered in 1763.

When change occurs, old times take on an importance that fires us up. People want to hang on to memories and mementos before they are lost forever.  The threat of a changing home town gave life to our historical society. In 1988, the Society purchased an historic building next to the Lincoln Public Library, a former church on Church St. just off Route 112 in town.

We are an all-volunteer Society. The Museum reflects the everyday life of past years with lots of photos, displays of logging, Civilian Conservation Corps, Hotels and Inns, and personal memorabilia of folks who lived in this river valley mainly from the 1890s to the present.

The Museum has an elevator for complete access to all floors of the building.
