Our Past is Our Present
Our history is a present we give our children.
Did you know that each of our fifteen towns has an historical society, dedicated to helping our past remain alive in our present, and well into our future? Buildings, paintings, photographs, maps and other artifacts are available to be explored and cherished for generations to come. Special events, such as holiday fairs, readings and guided tours, help keep our history accessible to everyone.
