The Jackson Historical Society was formed in April of 1977 by a group of townspeople whose interest was to preserve the history of Jackson. The Society records information about the past and present of Jackson for its future. Its bylaws state:

"The object of this Society shall be to engender interest in the history of the Jackson area by the collection, display and care of articles of historic and educational interest, to accept such materials by gift, loan, purchase or all other appropriate means and to act as a body for dissemination of information thereof."

Our new home in Jackson is in the old Town Hall, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. The Society has restoreed this historic building and created The Museum of White Mountain Art at Jackson. Visit our historic displays, use our archives for your research, enjoy our 19th century collection of White Mountain art.
