Make a Donation to the Merrimack Historical Society

Consider making a gift to the
Merrimack Historical Society.

The Merrimack Historical Society is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization. We do, however have expenses. Our "historic" (which means "quaint, but often needing maintenance") schoolhouse aka historical society building requires on-going repairs and upgrades. Our artifacts are often preserved in an acid-free environment that incurs a cost. In addition, we often see artifacts and documents for sale, relating to Merrimack's history and people, and would like to be able to purchase them.

Please consider making a donation of your time, talent or a monetary gift.

To make a monetary donation, please send a check (a money order, or cash will be accepted also), made payable to "Merrimack Historical Society," and mailed to:
