Our History and Mission

The Francestown Improvement & Historical Society (FIHS) has been a vital community organization since founding in the summer of 1911.  Since then, F.I.H.S. has been responsible for a wide range of important activities and efforts for the town and people of Francestown, New Hampshire. 

FIHS is an unique organization having two distinct missions:
*  to promote the history of Francestown, NH, preserving our significant collection of artifacts, and
*   to fund a number of Town "improvement" projects.

Funds raised during Labor Day Weekend allow F.I.H.S. to continue its mission:
to enhance community facilities, to provide financial support and leadership to projects that benefit the community, and to promote the welfare and beautification of Francestown.  FIHS is dedicated to the preservation of its historical collection, to the acquisition and preservation of materials and artifacts of historical value, and to providing the public with access to its historical collection to expose and educate the public to Town's rich and diverse history.
