The Mission of the Moultonborough Historical Society is to preserve the history and character of the Town of Moultonborough, to share our buildings, collections and resources with the community through research, exhibitions and educational programs, and to inspire our members and future generations to appreciate our rich heritage.
The Moultonborough Historical Society's on-going project is the Lamprey Museum. This is the result of meticulous, concentrated attention to detail from a dedicated group of historic-minded individuals along with generous monetary contributions. Many people are not aware of the treasure they are driving by every day on Route 25.
The original structure was built in the town's early settler days; it was later home to one of the town's most prominent merchants. It has also been an inn, and a store. Stylistically and structurally it represents a hundred years of growth and change in Moultonborough's development.
The Society is now in the process of returning the house to its 1920s appearance with new paint and a rebuilt veranda. Eventually the Society expects to use the building as its museum and interpretive center. There could be no better place to study the history of Moultonborough than in this house on this piece of ground.
The Lamprey House Museum will reopen on Sunday, June 1st, 2014.
