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.
