The entire collection and archives of the Historical Society represents more than 40 years of donations of everything from books to 17th century baby clothes. All collections and displays are the result of the generosity of hundreds of caring individuals and organizations. Donations of items are under the care of our curators. If you or someone you know has old newspapers, photos or items you would like to donate to safe care for the future, please contact the curator or one of our members. You will receive a receipt and the assurance of our gratitude.


We have been very fortunate for several decades, to receive generous donations from many members and non-members. We would not be able to provide the services and resources we do, without this help.


Membership dues make up one part of our financial resources, as well as sales of books and other items. Donations over and above dues, are always welcome and may be made by contacting the treasurer.


To donate stock, the donor gifts stock and receives a tax deduction for the full market value on the day of transfer. Since Windham Historical Society is a non-profit organization, we can sell the stock, receive the proceeds and pay no state or federal taxes on the gain. For more information on this option, please contact our Investment Advisory firm, Clark & Stuart, Inc. and ask for Charles (Rocky) Clark, CFP at (207) 775-1140 or email
