Historical Society


The purpose of the HIstorical Society is to bring people together that are interested in the history of the Town of Fair Haven. Our extensive collection includes books, scrapbooks, magazines, photos, newspapers, town records, genealogical files, and artifacts.


Donations are always welcome.

The annual events of the Society include participation in:

Spring Fling in May
Honors community members of the armed forces.
Applefest in September
A Fall celebation.

Charter Day in October
A free public event.

  The Society works with the Fair Haven Free Library to present free programs to the public.  Once a year the Society puts a month-long display at the Welcome Center and enters in the Slate Valley Festival of Trees.

In 2019, the Society received a Certificate of Merit from the Vermont Historical Society for their book “Fair Haven Memories.”  The last big campaign that the Society undertook was the replacing of marble fence posts in the park.


The Board meets the third Monday of every month at 6:30PM in our office located in the municipal building. Meetings are open to all interested members and citizens.

The Society has several items for sale including books, postcards, notecards, mugs, and sweatshirts. All proceeds support the work of the Historical Society.

A campaign is currently under way to raise money to replace the wooden posts surrounding the Fair Haven Park with marble posts.

For more information, or to volunteer, please contact any Board member.
