Our Mission

Today the mission of the Society continues to be “to collect and preserve valuable manuscripts and artifacts (the Collection) relating to the history of Hancock and its people. The Collection shall be housed in the Society’s building in Hancock. The Society shall also record items and events of historic significance, and foster a general interest in the history of Hancock and New Hampshire”.
