Hancock Historical Society

Hancock Historical Society

The Hancock New Hampshire Historical Society is a non-profit organization incorporated in 1903 by twenty-seven founders.

The house, property and museum 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 hope you enjoy our work.

Please support this magazine of trusted historical writing, now in its 75th year, and the volunteers that sustain it with a donation to American Heritage.
