Mission

The objective of the Society shall be the encouragement of interest in the history of the Town of Wolfeboro, NH, by all appropriate means, including the collection, display and care of articles of historic interest pertaining to the history of Wolfeboro, and the ownership, lease or operation of property involved therewith for the benefit of this and future generations.

History

The Wolfeboro Historical Society was formed September 1, 1925 and incorporated August 31, 1926. Its by-laws were developed by J.T. Meader, Miss L. Maude Cate and Mrs. Mabel Hatch and approved August 13, 1929.

The Society has leased the Clark House from the Town of Wolfeboro since July 7, 1927. In 1959 the Town gave the Society a 99 year lease on the Pleasant Valley Schoolhouse when it was moved to the Clark House grounds. The firehouse was added to the Clark House complex in 1982. Currently the Clark House Museum Complex, consisting of the Clark House, schoolhouse, and firehouse, is owned by the Town of Wolfeboro and is operated by the Wolfeboro Historical Society.

A 2006 presentation by Jim Rogers to the BOS gained approval to reconstruct an antique 1840's barn on the property. Phase 1 is completed and a modified phase 2 proposing seasonal useage will be presented to the BOS in the spring of 2011. The barn completion will culminate an 80 year quest by the society to add needed space for storage.
