Preserving the History & Heritage of Lake Winnipesaukee & Vicinity
Welcome to the website for the Lake Winnipesaukee Museum, part of the Lake Winnipesaukee Historical Society. Here at the museum, and in greater part, the historical society, we are dedicated to preserving the history of Lake Winnipesaukee and the towns that circle its shores. To help fulfill that mission, we have created this website to serve as your virtual portal to the history of the region. Use these links below to begin exploring now!
