Manchester Historical Society & Old Manchester Museum

Manchester Historical Society & Old Manchester Museum

The society manages The History Center, 175 Pine Street, site of our administrative offices, special events, and Sunday lectures; the Cheney Homestead at 106 Hartford Road, given to our society through a gracious bequest of the Cheney family in 1969; the Keeney Schoolhouse next to the Homestead; and the Old Manchester Museum at 126 Cedar Street, the former Cheney School building, restored by volunteers and business donors. The museum opened in 1985 and has three floors of collections, as well as the research facility.

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.
