The Dublin Historical Society, whose mission is to “ . . . collect, prepare and preserve all historical facts, relics and memorials of all kinds pertaining to the Town of Dublin, including such portions of other towns as may originally have been a part of the Town of Dublin . . .,” was founded in 1920 and revived in 1986.
We are governed by a board of trustees, who usually meet once a month. Our current line-up is:
President: Lisa Foote
Vice President: Sarah Bauhan
Treasurer: Bill Goodwin
Archivist: Lisa Foote
Curator of the Museum: Russell Bastedo
Trustees: Ian Aldrich, Henry James, Russell Bastedo
We also operate a small museum in an old one-room schoolhouse on Main Street just below the current elementary school. The museum is open in the summer on Saturday mornings from 9-noon. At all other times, the museum is open by appointment. Please call and ask for Russell Bastedo.
Our main collection of letters, photos, documents, books etc. are kept in the Dublin Archives located behind the Dublin Town Hall. See our Archives page for more information.
We welcome submissions to the historical society: books, letters, documents, photos, et al, that pertain to Dublin. If you are having a good “clear out” and don’t know what to do with that box of letters (and they have to do with Dublin or Dublin residents, past and present), give us a call before you go to the dump!
