The Conway Historical Society will be holding its
Annual Meeting
on October 10, 2017, at 7:00 P.M.
at the Salyards Center for the Arts.

The CHS Executive Board extends an invitation to all CHS members and interested people to join us in discussions about the future of the Conway Historical Society, as part of the process of developing a strategic plan to guide us into the future.

We will be encouraging feedback about the mission, collection development, programming, and facility use.

A reminder that the CHS currently owns 3 buildings:
Eastman Lord House
Salyards Center for the Arts
and the "Old Conway Firehouse"
(current home of Mountain Top Music Center).

CHS curator Bob Cottrell will provide perspectives about current trends in historical preservation and the effect on Historical Societies. Board members will lead the discussion on finances, mission, and building use.

In order to remain a vibrant organization we need input from our members to help guide the future work and focus of the Society. There will be a potluck supper beginning at 6:00 P.M. for those who would like to join us before the 7:00 meeting. We look forward to seeing you, and listening to your perspectives and ideas!

The Conway Historical Society invites you to our September 12 program on School House memories. Our goal will be to share stories about any and all of the schools in Conway. The result will be a digital history of school buildings, a map of schools and record of stories.

Please bring photos you are willing to share, old yearbooks, and reminiscences of fast times, good times or even the bad times of your school adventures.

Bring young students, children, grandchildren so they can hear the stories about the good old days and how you had to walk ten miles to school in the snow uphill both ways and you were never late, never spoke back to your teachers, and they never cancelled school!


The program is free and open to the public!
Call 603-323-3359 for questions or details.

Thanks to our sponsors and members for supporting
the Conway Historical Society
so we can offer these programs to the public for free.

HISTORY:

I often say of George Washington
that he was one of the few
in the whole history of the world
who was not carried away by power.
Robert Frost

A truly American sentiment recognizes
the dignity of labor
and the fact that
honor lies in honest toil.
Grover Cleveland

History is not a burden on the memory
but an illumination of the soul.
Lord Acton

Human history becomes more and more
a r
ace between
education and catastrophe.
H. G. Wells
