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.

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...
