Walpole exhibit at historical society museum

The Walpole, N.H., Historical Society museum and gift shop are now open every Saturday noon to 4 p.m. until mid-October. The public is invited to view new exhibits and new additions to the Louisa May Alcott exhibit and browse the gift shop.

The main gallery has been transformed into a timeline of over 200 years of Walpole history. Visitors learn how Walpole evolved from a Native American seasonal fishing encampment in the 1700s and how early settlers transformed it into a prosperous New England Village. Upstairs, the new “When They Were Young” exhibit features children’s clothing from the 1800s to the 1960s.

The museum is located at 32 Main St. in Walpole. They also open by appointment. Call 603-756-3449 to make a reservation.
