#FarmingtonNH #Historical Society Members Bring #Keepsakes & #Stories

After our September Farmington Historical Society meeting we had society members  participate in a keepsake "Show and Tell". People in the society brought items or photos of items to share with everyone in attendance.

The best part was hearing the stories attached to the items each person had brought in and what those items meant to them. The type of items brought in were varied: ceramics, photographs, furniture, and even a condolence response card from Mrs. Kennedy!

This was a great way to get us interacting with history and helped all of us hone our story telling abilities to share some of our  personal history. Please take a look at some of the items shared that night below. We hope we can have another event like this one of these next year. Please let us know it you would like to participate.
