Meredith Historical Society Announces Full Program Series for 2022

The Meredith Historical Society recently announced plans for a full Program Series in 2022. Eight interesting and informative programs are scheduled for the first Tuesday of each month beginning in April and running through November 2022.

Karen Thorndike, Society president noted, “The Society is excited to have the program series back in full swing this year. We’ve put together a diverse line up that will certainly inform and entertain our growing audience.” Karen added, “The program series is one way that we try to advance our mission as a volunteer, nonprofit organization. This year we’ll be partnering with the Meredith Conservation Commission, the Meredith Rotary Club and New Hampshire Humanities as well as featuring historical research done by our Research Committee.”

All programs are free and open to the public.

The Meredith Historical Society is very pleased to play its role in bringing alive the history of the town. Our purpose is to preserve, develop, and promote the knowledge and awareness of Meredith’s unique history to all interested parties. This history is available to everyone through our two museums, our newsletters, our Speaker Series, and through the pages of this website, where extensive town information and historical research may be found.
