Happy Holidays to all of you from all of us at the Franconia Museum.

Here is a Rose Hill Christmas Parade picture of Santa coming in for a landing in 1973.
Picture courtesy of the Raettig Family who used to live on Willowood Lane.

If you have pictures to share of the Christmas Parades, or even decorated houses from the past, please send a note to 
FranconiaMuseum@yahoo.com so we may add them to this site.

Our Goals

   •    To identify, codify, and protect the history of the Franconia area
   •    To promote the heritage for the Franconia area
   •    To provide educational opportunities for students and the greater community
   •    To highlight and enhance the Spirit of Franconia
 

Our Mission

•    The Franconia Museum preserves the past, present, and future of the Franconia area in pictures, artifacts, and stories.
•    The Franconia Museum reaches out by educating, enriching, and bringing together the greater community.
 

We are a 501 (c) (3) organization led and run entirely by volunteers.

The Museum also does exhibits at local libraries, and other community meeting places throughout the year.

The best way to get to know the Franconia Museum is to come to one of our events. We host story-swaps two or three times a year and the Franconia History Day in the fall.

Please check our web site often for event and exhibit announcements. If you would like to be on our event mailing list please send us an email at Franconia Museum.

If you have a story to tell or a picture, artifact, or map to contribute please let us know. We are here to tell YOUR story!
