Founded in 1972 by a group of citizens who felt the need of its services, the organization for a number of years met in members' homes. Before long, many photos and other ephemera began piling up. When the GED Education building closed, and was unoccupied, The Mayor and Board of Selectmen voted to lease it to the society, in perpetuity for $1.00 per year. It now serves as a research center with valuable historic material available for use by the media and others performing research. Pictured right are past presidents and members celebrating its opening.

The Research Center also doubles as a museum as members erect and display items of local and regional history. The center is open the second and fourth Sundays, 2-4 p.m or by special arrangement. The archive committee handles many inquiries for information.
