The Pelham Historical Society Museum has been created to display documents and other historical artifacts that tell the story of Pelham’s history. Society volunteers are currently hand crafting display cases, cabinets and bookcases to enable the public to enjoy the viewing of the society’s growing collection of old things.
There is no limit to the variety of objects that we hope to display. We have the fireplace mantel from General Joshua Atwood’s best parlor and the door to his master bedroom. We have a collection of Street Trolley artifacts including railroad spikes, sections of track, model trolley cars, track layout plans, time-tables and photos. Other collections include early kitchen utensils and wood working tools. Flags, uniforms and military items make up still another collection.
You can help make the Pelham Historical Society Museum a truly unique enjoyable educational viewing experience. Do you have any old town reports, books, photos, diaries, letters, newspaper articles, account books, voting lists, posters, tools, military items, family histories, clothing, embossed glass milk bottles from Pelham’s old farms, foot warmers, furniture, children’s toys, doll collections, antiques, family genealogies, or other items that you would like to donate to the Pelham museum?
If so, please contact William T. Hayes, Museum Curator, of the Pelham Historical Society Museum by clicking here.
Plaques will identify the donor of items on display.
