Newspaper Archive Room at MHA Research Center
The Manchester Historic Association is pleased to announce that a newspaper archive room has been established at the Amherst Street Research Center.  This room will house a collection of over 300 bound volumes of historic Manchester newspapers, including the Manchester Union, Evening Union, and Manchester Leader, many of which were recently donated to the MHA by the NH Union Leader.  The room features newly installed archive shelving, funded through a generous grant from the Norwin S. and Elizabeth N. Bean Foundation.  The MHA is grateful to both the NH Union Leader and Bean Foundation for making this important historical resource possible.    
Now on Exhibit: Hats Off to Manchester

Tuesday-Saturday, 10:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. - Included with museum admission 
Bowlers, Derbies, Fedoras, Oh My! Whatever style you prefer, hats have always played an important part in our lives. They cover our heads when it rains or snows, they signify a social group or profession we belong to, and most importantly, they complete an outfit.  

In the Exhibit "Hats Off to Manchester", the Manchester Historic Association digs deep into its collection to bring you a special collection of hats made, worn or bought in Manchester. Take a stroll down memory lane as we bring stories, photographs and of course hats from some of Elm Street's most beloved stores.  Come see hat boxes and display photos from Pariseau's, J.W. Hills, and M.A. Barton's just to name a few.
On exhibit through August 1, 2019.
