2020 Holiday Ornament
The Manchester Historic Association is pleased to announce this year's holiday ornament featuring Rock Rimmon.

The ornament features a colorized depiction of Rock Rimmon, an important Manchester landmark and arguably the city’s most recognizable geological feature.

Each year the Manchester Historic Association produces an original, limited edition brass-plated ornament that celebrates Manchester's history. These unique, detailed ornaments are handcrafted in the United States by the same company that makes the annual White House Holiday Ornament. They make perfect Christmas tree decorations or gifts for the holidays and for many other occasions. Each comes in a decorative box. 
These ornaments are available for $25.00 in the Millyard Museum Shop as well as at the MHA Research Center. The 2020 ornaments, as well as a limited number of ornaments from past years, can also be purchased online.   

We are excited to announce the launch of a dual pass that visitors can purchase on Saturdays for both the Millyard Museum and SEE Science Center.

Now you can visit both the Millyard Museum and the SEE Science Center at 200 Bedford Street in Manchester, NH with one pass for only $13!

Manchester's Urban Ponds - Exhibit Open!
Manchester’s Urban Ponds: Past, Present, and Future

In the Henry M. Fuller State Theatre Gallery in the Millyard Museum
Tuesday-Saturday, 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. - Included with museum admission

Although ponds may not be the first thing one thinks about in Manchester, the Queen City has several ponds that have played an important role in the area’s history. More recently, the Manchester Urban Ponds Restoration Program, established in 2000, has led cleanup efforts to help return the city’s ponds to their historic uses. This exhibit looks at the history of several of Manchester’s urban ponds, including Crystal Lake, Dorrs Pond, Maxwell Pond, Nutts Pond, Pine Island Pond, and Stevens Pond and celebrates the accomplishments of the Urban Ponds Restoration Program over the last 20 years. 

Sponsored by City of Manchester, Department of Public Works, Environmental Protection Division 

"Manchester's Urban Ponds: Past, Present, and Future" will be on display in the Millyard Museum's State Theater Gallery through November 28.
The Manchester Historic Association is an independent tax-exempt charitable 501(c)(3) educational nonprofit organization with the mission to collect, preserve and share the history of Manchester, New Hampshire USA. The Association operates the Millyard Museum and Research Center.
