Organization History


The Chatham Historical Society was established in 1989. In 2018 the Society purchased the Chatham Center one-room schoolhouse from the Town. This was the last operating 1st-8th grade, one-room schoolhouse in New Hampshire. Since the school's closing in 1968, the Chatham Community Library occupied the main floor and the Historical Society kept its archives in the basement. Now the Society will use the main floor for exhibits, events, and meetings.
