The schoolhouse is open on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings from 9-12 and Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:30. Contact Anita at 424-5084 for more information.


A quarterly newsletter is distributed to individual and corporate members. Each year a membership-program booklet is published with the names of our members. This is available upon request to current members.

The speakers at the Merrimack Historical Society meetings will have their programs appear on the town's cable channel, for all to see. Thanks to Ron Ketchie, Bob L'Heureux and the town's media department for their help. The first one, to appear in the near future features Eber Currier as he talks about Currier Orchards on Peaslee Road, the history of the land belonging originally to the Spalding family and the adjacent Old King's Highway passing by the orchard.
