After being in the Lisbon Public Library basement since 1964, it was time for the Lisbon Area Historical Society's museum to see the light of day and for items in our collection to be available for viewing by the members of the community.  Parker Block property owner Peter Loescher made available to the Society the former North Country Bookkeeping Services office - just one store down from the American Flag Store in the center of Lisbon village - to use until we can within the next couple years find a suitable permanent home for our collection of items from Lisbon, Lyman, and Landaff.  (The Society continues to house many larger items in our dedicated space in our Pickwick-Clough Room in the Library.)  

With a visible presence on Main Street, the Society, a 501(c) 3 nonprofit charity, plans to launch a membership and fundraising drive to further promote our mission to preserve and share our history.
