To preserve and promote the history and heritage
of Lake Winnipesaukee.
The Lake Winnipesaukee Historical Society is a 501(c)3
nonprofit organization dedicated to promote and preserve
the history and heritage of Lake Winnipesaukee and vicinity.
Lake Winnipesaukee Historical Society fulfills this mission
in large part through the summer hours at the Lake Winnipesaukee
Museum. See the pertinent sections on this web site for
details on hours, directions, exhibits and events.
For your use, historical information is organized at the
Museum by topic in easily accessible binders. Historical
inquiries can be researched by Museum staff by using these
files, our collections and many contacts in the area, while
referrals to other historical societies, museums or organizations
are provided when appropriate.
Bob Lawton and son, Tim, founded the Lake Winnipesaukee
Historical Society in 1985, after years of living on and
scuba diving in the lake, with the goal of opening a facility
dedicated to the rich history of Lake Winnipesaukee. This
goal was realized in June 2004 when the Museum opened.
We are presently raising money to fund an expansion in
order to provide more exhibition space. A timber frame
barn-like addition of approximately 3,000 square feet is
being designed by Christopher P. Williams Architects and
will be added on to the present structure where presently
exists an old garage/storage area.
