Hello! This site contains the online collection and archive information for items in the Farmington NH Historical Society Museum at the Goodwin Library.  The online museum has a small representation of what we have available, but as time goes on, more items are being added at regular intervals. Some of the items in the museum collection belong to other organizations and are cataloged as such. Other items do not exist in the physical collection, but have been donated as digital records for the archive. Please consider visiting the Farmington NH Historical Society website to view past and current events sponsored by the society.
