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.
