The New Market Historical Society was a 2022 recipient of the Spirit of NH Volunteer Award
The Award was in the “Volunteer Champion” Category
which recognizes those organizations in the state made up of entirely of volunteers who donate their time, efforts and resources toward the benefit of the Community.
The honor was awarded in part for the new Historic Downtown Walking Tour, a two-year-long effort by the Society to make over 300 years of Newmarket’s rich history more accessible and relatable to the schools and townspeople.
— Another award recipient in the “Senior” category was Kathy Stilwell (also a life member of the Historical Society) for her contributions to the Sunrise/Sunset Senior Center.
-The town was well represented!
We wish to thank Proulx Oil and Propane, and Chinburg Builders who generously donated funds
for our efforts to acquire new artifacts and preserve those manuscripts, diaries, letters, and articles already in our collection.
The Stone School Museum will be open to public with a special display of our antique Christmas toys, clothing and “Gifts from Yesteryear”
Join us for the holidays, complimentary refreshments [cookies, hot chocolate and s’mores] and pick up a few stocking stuffers —
