History: Our new museum space in the Parker Block houses a collection of 18th, 19th, and 20th century artifacts, papers, books, photographs, genealogies and other items relevant to Lisbon, Lyman, and Landaff history.

Cultural Statement: Our mission is to continue collecting artifacts, photographs, papers, genealogies, and other items relevant to our area�s rich history. By adding to our lasting museum, we can provide a picture of our area�s history as well as aide researchers and teach the students in our schools. Public programs are held on various local subjects of interest. We continue to preserve and conserve items in our museum as our budget allows.

Activities: Programs have included storyteller and humorist, Rebecca Rule; Salmon Hole Cemetery Walk with music provided by Jeff Warner; antiques appraisal events; Civil War programs with Dr. Joe Nyberg; Ogontz White Mountain Camp for Girls Program with Libbie Payne, Old Man of the Mountain program with Dick Hamilton, Curtains Without Borders with Chris Hadsel, and rescue of historic painted curtains. Major fundraisers have been publication of Personal Traces, a Historical Collection of Personal Accounts from Lisbon, Lyman and Landaff, N.H., Book One and Two by Andrea M. Fitzgerald and reproduction of the George Norris 1883 Birds-eye Map of Lisbon. All profits from the books and maps benefit the Lisbon Area Historical Society, a 501 ( c ) 3 nonprofit charity. A grant was also awarded from NH Electric Co-op Foundation to conserve Lisbons original 1790 manuscript map of Lisbon.
