This Museum of Farmington History explores general Farmington, NH history, as well as the online collections, archive information, and physical collections the Farmington NH Historical Society. The Museum of Farmington History and Farmington NH Historical Society are located in the lower level of the Goodwin Library. The online museum has a small representation of what we have in the physical museum collection, but as time goes on, more items are being added at regular intervals; it is always open. The museum spaces in the lower level of the library, are open by appointment, on some holidays, and on Farmington Hay Day each year. Also visit the Farmington NH Historical Society.
