Last year, the society began collecting information on the feasibility of digitizing the back issues of the newspaper that the Goodwin Library currently has on microfilm. When completed, issues of the Farmington News will be available online. Members of the society were excited to finalize this project and are eager for its completion. Among the various projects that the Historical Society will attempt to complete in the coming year will be to dehumidify the museum, begin an artifact cataloging project, open our online museum, and open the online issues of the Farmington News.
The Society meets on the first Friday of the Month. Monthly meetings include of presentations on topics of interest feature local and regional speakers. The presentation is followed by light refreshments and a business meeting. The Society operates and manages the Henry Wilson Museum at the Goodwin Library, and
