Welcome to New Market Historical Society

We are dedicated to increasing public understanding and enthusiasm for our local history. Our mission is to provide a central location where we can store, introduce, interpret, and stimulate the study of our town’s history. Our goals are to tell Newmarket’s story, preserve its local artifacts, and sponsor historical events and educational opportunities.

The Society generally meets on the fourth Monday of the month, March through October. See our 2014 calendar for a listing of our events — exact dates, times, and locations. The public is always welcome to attend our educational meetings, which are free except for select special events.


MONDAY’S MONTHLY MEETING   September 22nd  7 pm

Researching Your Roots —

Anyone with French-Canadian Ancestry should make a point to join us for this presentation

The American-Canadian Genealogical Society, located in Manchester NH, specializes and helping trace your French-Canadian and Acadian ancestors. Pauline Cusson has been an active researcher in French-Canadian genealogy for 25 years. She has given many French-Canadian and non-French-Canadian presentations in the greater Manchester area and as far north as Meredith at various senior centers; community centers; libraries and historical and genealogical societies. Since retirement in 2009, Pauline can be found helping patrons at the American-Canadian Genealogical Society Library during library hours.


Due to several requests, our previously planned “Newmarket’s Quilt Exhibit”,

which was scheduled for a one day showing in November,

has been rescheduled into a full monthly program for Oct 1915.
