The Franconia Heritage Museum is located
in an 1878 New England Farm House with attached barn and sheds.
The Museum opened in 1998 with a collection
preserved by Sarah Nelson Welch, great granddaughter of Luke Brooks, one of the
first white men to observe the Old Man of the Mountains in Franconia Notch in
1805. Many other local families have contributed their artifacts to the
museum, so that it reflects life in Franconia since the town's founding in 1772.
A visit to our fully furnished farmhouse is like a trip to
your great grandparents home.
