This exhibit brings together the many information and photography collection books that have been made about Farmington NH exploring the notable people and places within the town. Most give a general history of the town, but a few concentrate on specific arenas or a single person like Henry Wilson, who was the 18th Vice President of the United States. Most were created during the 19th and 20th century, so they have biases stemming from those periods.

This exhibit contains items that the museum seeks further information to identify or enhance the meaning of the items. We receive many items each year that have little information with them, but often that little bit of information provides leads and research possibilities to explore. These are items that came to us with no information and we are eager to know more about them.
