The Holderness Historical Society preserves the history and culture of the Town of Holderness, New Hampshire. They collect artifacts, maintain a museum, and offer educational programs to the public.


On August 28, 1961, the first meeting of the Holderness Historical Society was held at the home of Susan Bacon Keith.  Through the next years meetings were held in private homes, the Community Church and the firehouse.  When the New Hampshire Baptist Convention declared the North Holderness Church defunct the Historical Society purchased the building and had it moved from Perch Pond Road to Curry Place in 1994.

  1. What is the name of the cemetery that is located on the Brooks Fisher Trail in Holderness? There is one stone standing. “Benjamin son of ? Daniel and ? Hannah ??????” This is a quite large cemetery enclosed by a stone wall. Close by is the remains of a cellar hole. This trail is off Perch Pond Road.
