The Historical Society of Cheshire County has been collecting, preserving, and communicating the history of Cheshire County, New Hampshire since 1927. The Society headquarters are at the Ball Mansion, an 1870 Italianate structure on Main Street in Keene, New Hampshire, which houses featured exhibits, a research library, a museum shop, and a collection of more than 300,000 items from the region’s history.
The Historical Society also operates a period museum in Keene’s most historic house, the Wyman Tavern, which was built in 1762 by Captain Isaac Wyman. The Wyman Tavern is open through the summer for tours, special events, and educational programs.
