Why Should I Support The Franconia Museum?

The Franconia Museum is a private, non-profit local history museum dedicated to preserving the past, present and future of the Franconia area in pictures, artifacts, and stories.

We do not have staff to pay, so all financial contributions go to cover program and display costs.  Your support will help organize and produce our Annual Franconia History Day, Story Swaps, History Tours, Lectures, Newsletter (Historic Franconia Legacies) and our “Franconia Remembers” Books.

Your contributions will also allow us to continue creating new exhibits about our Historic Franconia for local schools and libraries, and enables us to professionally preserve and store our artifacts.

Please support our history.  Join our expanding Circle of Friends.

Below are ways to join in the fun and history of the area:
