Sponsorship

Show the community you care about the history of Cheshire County – become a sponsor.

For 93 years the Historical Society of Cheshire County has been connecting people of the Monadnock Region with local history stories. In 2020, when the only thing we could be certain of was uncertainty, our staff of six people did whatever it took to collect,preserve,and communicate local history that could be relevant and useful to the public. In 2021, we will continue to help people of all ages “find their place in history.”

If your business is interested in becoming a business member or sponsor of an event or program at the Historical Society of Cheshire County, please contact Rick Swanson at 603-352-1895, or devdir@hsccnh.org. Click here for Historical Society Sponsorships 2021 information.
