About Us

The Hancock New Hampshire Historical Society is a non-profit organization incorporated in 1903 by twenty-seven forward thinking members of the Hancock community.
museum1-aboutusThe purpose of the Society is to collect and preserve valuable documents, photos, artifacts, and oral histories relating to the history of Hancock and its people. The collection is housed in the Society’s 200 year old brick building on Main Street, Hancock.

The house, property and museum collection are maintained entirely by society volunteers as a public trust and a community service. The collection of archives and artifacts are the treasures of Hancock’s past and include such items as furniture, china, glass, military items, musical instruments, a large collection of tools, manuscripts, photographs, paintings, textiles and more.

In addition to the permanent displays, there are changing exhibits each summer. We also have numerous programs and special events throughout the year that are open to the public. Our newsletter is mailed to all members.
