The Trustees of the Windham Museum are comprised of three (3) individuals appointed by the Board of Selectmen to three (3) year terms. Residents interested in volunteering their time as a Museum Trustee are encouraged to contact the Town Administrator.
The Trustees are charged with the development and oversight of the recently established Town Museum. The Museum is located in the historic Armstrong Building at 3 North Lowell Road, and will house purchased, recovered, and donated artifacts of Windham's past. Currently serving as Trustees are:
Jean Manthorne, Chairman
The Museum hosts an annual open house the day of the Christmas Tree Lighting on the town common. The rest of the year it is open by appointment. Please contact one of the Trustees to make arrangements.
The Armstrong Building originally housed the Nesmith Library. After the library moved to its current location on Fellows Road, the interior of the Armstrong Building was restored as closely as possible to its original state. Since then, the Museum Trustees, Dennis Root, Kim Monterio, and Jean Manthorne, along with volunteers from the Windham Historical Society, have worked to restore the Museum artifacts and create displays to showcase and secure these historic items. The final stage of the project, which is ongoing, is the cataloguing of the entire collection using a software system called Past Perfect, which is specifically designed for museums.
