We Wish To Thank All Those Who Came Out To Join In Our 4th Annual Santa Pub Crawl on Saturday Night.  Thank You for Your Support.

Welcome to the New Market Historical Society

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

The public is always welcome to attend our educational meetings, which are free except for select special events.

Donations are always welcomed and greatly appreciated!


We are pleased to announce that Proulx Oil and Propane, 1 Simons Lane, Newmarket  was the sponsor for our August Fund Raiser, the Sunday Afternoon Tea held at the Town Hall on August 4th.     

—-  Another Newmarket Business, Chinburg Builders, has generously donated funds in our efforts to acquire new artifacts and preserve those manuscripts, diaries, letters,  and articles already in our collection.
