The purpose of the Society is to bring together people interested in the history of the Town of Fair Haven. Our extensive collection includes books, scrapbooks, magazines, photos, newspapers, town records, genealogical files, and artifacts. Donations are always welcome.
Our annual events include participation in Spring Fling (May), the Welcome Center Expo. (June), and Applefest (September). Each July the Society co-sponsors Local History Day with the Fair Haven Farmers’ Market. We also hold an annual tea for our senior citizens, an annual meeting with guest speaker (January), and a celebration on Charter Day (October). Board meetings are usually held on the second Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. Our newsletter, the “Slate of Historic Events Past and Present,” is published quarterly.
The Society has several items for sale including books, postcards, notecards, mugs, and sweatshirts. All proceeds support the work of the Society. In addition, a campaign is currently under way to raise money to replace the wooden posts surrounding the Fair Haven Park with marble posts.
For more information, or to volunteer, please contact any Board member.
- The Fair Haven Historical Society will hold their Annual Meeting on Sunday, January 18th at 2:00PM in the Learning Center of the Fair Haven Grade School. The meeting will feature a presentation by Mike Stannard. He will present an overview of the historic forces of an engineering study of the first of three dams built on the Castleton River, the Depot Street Dam. His talk will include images of the area, historic references, and the study itself. If time permits, he may also cover briefly some of the proposed projects there at the dam. Mr. Stannard gave this presentation to the family of Matthew Lyon during their family reunion held this past summer and was very well received. The meeting is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
