As another indication that COVID-19 restrictions are becoming more flexible, the Nottingham Historical Society’s Van Dame School and Museum reopened to the public on Thursday, May 13, 2021, for the first time in over a year. It also did so with a new sign which it puts on NH Route 152 when it is open. Van Dame School and Museum is located at 139 Stage Road in Nottingham just in front of the Community Center aka Town Hall. The building is open Thursdays from 9 to 11 AM and by appointment. The Nottingham Historical Society’s once school house is available for research and answering questions concerning town history and genealogy when possible. In the building itself there are pictures, records and histories of many the town’s places, events, and people. These include material from its once 13 one room school houses, its early residents and industries, its over 125 private cemeteries and many of its prominent families. It has a large collection of historic maps of the town, region, state and nation. It has many of the objects featured in the History Mysteries Series(HMS) in the Forum. Also, its annual Blueberry Pancake Breakfast is on for Sunday, August 8, 2021. It was not held last year because of the pandemic. Save that date! And, you are welcomed at the museum.
