About the Grantham Historical Society

Horton-Farm-Rt--10-1958.jpgThe Grantham Historical Society was established in 1992 by a small group of Grantham residents. Its mission: a nonprofit organization that will collect and preserve Grantham's history and to generate interest in the town. In 1995, the Selectmen formally established the Grantham Town Archives and appointed a town archivist. Together, these two town resources have assumed responsibility for gathering and preserving Grantham's past. The archives are open every Friday afternoon from 1 to 4 p.m. at the old Town Office building on Dunbar Hill Road. Visitors are welcome; no appointment is necessary.
