Manchester Historical Museum Fund

preserving Manchester’s history since 1886!

The Manchester Historical Museum needs more than membership dues to maintain the Trask House, collection and archives that bring Manchester history to life!

Last year your donations allowed the MHM to:

  • Paint the front and side of the Trask House
  • Offer our summer exhibit and lecture series
  • Offer children’s hands-on history programs
  • Expand our school programs

This year your donations will help to:

  • Paint the rest of the exterior of the Trask House
  • Purchase additional high-quality lighting for our art collection
  • Acquire additional items for our collection
  • Continue to offer mentoring program for Manchester-Essex H.S. students
  • Continue to offer our lecture, school and family programs as well as exhibits
