Atkinson Historical Society Research Projects

The Atkinson Historical Society receives regular requests to research New Hampshire homes, buildings, local families, people and events. Your request will go through a group of individuals that rely on their individual memories of Atkinson and understanding the paper resources we have available to complete the research request.

One of the remembers recalled that woman and the work she did as a seamstress, making aprons and that she was a 'nice lady'. She live in the home on 115 Main Streen known historically as the Fermald House. The man remembered the stories his mother had told him and his sisder about the aprons his great grandmother has sewn.

The Atkinson Congregational Church Afghan

The afghan is a collection of names that was assembled in 1930. We would very much like to find out a little more about each person and perhaps collect a back story on each. Click here to go to the page dedicated to the Afghan.
