PAST EXHIBIT   2022 Season

Made in Plymouth, NH - Yesterday to Today

Many people think of Plymouth as a sleepy college town, but at points in its past it was a hive of industry, manufacturing goods that were shipped across the country and around the world.

The Plymouth Historical Society's newest exhibit features over a dozen industries -- large and small -- from Plymouth's founding to today. While some goods were common items that were made in most towns, others were quite unique and surprising. Come and discover the history hidden in you own backyard! The exhibit displays include brief narratives, interesting photos and actual artifacts when possible.

How will our exhibition space continue to evolve?

All presentations take place at the Plymouth Historical Museum in the Old Webster Courthouse on Court Street and are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.

New Hampshire on Skis

Take Scandinavian and Austrian immigrants, the Dartmouth Outing Club, the Cannon Mountain Tramway, the muscular Christian, amateur tinkerers, and Professor E. John B. Allen. Cover it with snow and shake, and you have all the makings of a unique New Hampshire history! Join us and learn about early skiing in the state, the importance of jumping, the mechanization of skiing, and how New England and New Hampshire fit into the big picture of America’s ski culture.

John Allen is Professor Emeritus of History at PSU, historian for the New England Ski Museum in Franconia, and author of several books about skiing.
