c. 1826 Sampler done by Harriet S. Rand, age 8, Lisbon, N.H., August 3, 1826.

The Lisbon Area Historical Society continues to welcome donations to our collection of documents, paintings, photographs and other items that will add to the historical record of life in our area over the years.  We encourage anyone who has such items  - including those relating to local families, businesses, schools and special events - to contact a representative of the Society to discuss the possibility of making a donation to the Society's collection.   Interested persons can contact us at info@lisbonareahistory.org, (603) 838-6146, and PO Box 6, Lisbon NH 03585.

The Society is particularly grateful to have received a large donation of documents, photographs, journals, and letters from the Bishop and allied families which includes well-preserved documents from the 1700s through the early 1900s.  The Society also has a large donation of early documents, photographs, journals, letters, and artifacts on loan from the Brummer and allied families.  Both the Bishop and Brummer collections are from some of the earliest Lisbon, Lyman, and Landaff families. In 2012 the Society received a large donation of very early Landaff papers including many pertaining to the Bronson and allied families.
