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.

Take a few minutes to explore our website to learn more about F.I.H.S.

We invite you to join our organization to help us as we continue our
 important work in Francestown.



 F.I.H.S.'s Mission continues today by:

  -  Funding Town improvement projects
  -  Improving Town recreational facilities
  -  Providing for seasonal beautification
  -  Collecting and preserving materials and artifacts of historical value
  -  Providing the public with access to the Society's collection
  -  Educating the public on the Town's rich and diverse history

**  We are fundraising and working hard to renovate "The Beehive" to serve as a home for our historic collection and as a learning and gathering place for the community and visitors interested in Francestown's fascinating history.

Save The Francestown Village Store

After our 200+ year-old Village Store closed due to foreclosure last fall, some 
extraordinary things happened.  First - a very generous man from Nevada heard about
our story and came forward with an offer to buy the historic store building and donate it the the town's historical society.  Next - the FIHS Board, a committee of  volunteer planners, and our ENTIRE community came together, committed to bringing our village store back 
for to this wonderful town!  There's a lot going on...
