Annual Meeting Postponed:
In light of continuing concerns regarding Covid-19, it has been decided that our annual meeting, which included a talk about the depression era CCC, and tentatively scheduled to take place at the Rivendell Schools main campus in Orford, will not the place on Thursday, September 23.
Instead, a later date will be announced in due course.
The purpose of the Orford Historical Society is to assist the residents of the Town of Orford in preserving their history and heritage for their appreciation and understanding, as well as for that of future generations.
Established in 1996, the OHS is a self-supporting, non-profit educational organization, with membership open to all who are interested in the history of Orford. We regularly present five programs each year, including walking tours and other home grown events drawing on the knowledge and experience of local residents. Working with students, we published an historical guide to the town, and more recently an illustrated collection of Orford-based poetry by Dot Pierson. Our growing collections include artifacts, photographs, letters, and documents.
Our next photo series will focus on selections from the Orford Historical Society Glass Plate Negative Collection
This week: "East of the 'Ville"
