The Meeting House, Home to the Society




To promote the interest in, and the understanding of, the history of the town of Salisbury in the State of New Hampshire.

To collect and preserve objects, facts and information of historical significance to the area, and to make them available to all who wish to examine them.

 Salisbury Historical Society  Incorporated 1966


Welcome to our 50th year.

Fifty years ago a small group of people saw fit to make arrangements to preserve the town hearst. From that effort grew a lively Historical Society.

In a short amount of time a Museum grew around it containing many historical objects and displays including a life size replica of a country store and post office.

The Salisbury Historical Society now owns the beautiful Baptist Meeting House where concerts and lectures are held as well as historical displays are shown. Among the displays is a unique array of wedding gowns spanning six generations from one family.

We also host a annual unique event for the Fourth graders of 3 towns to encourage the love of history. It is called Round Robin Day. Part of our commitment includes a very unusual Cemetery Walk which the children love. The Cemetery Walk is done again in the summer during Old Home  Day.

We welcome all to our programs and encourage you to be become part of our efforts to preserve history and enrich this effort with your interests, energy and talents.
