Established in 2007

The New Market Historical Society, Inc (NMHS) encourages the discovery and preservation of historical homes, buildings and other significant sites along with pictures, documents related to the New Market area.

The Town of New Market has been listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places since 1972. There are 40 pre-Civil War buildings in the town.

The New Market Historical Society begins the year with its annual dinner meeting on the 4th Thursday in January. It then meets at 7:30 pm the fourth Thursday of March, May, July and September as well as the third Thursday in November. The meetings are usually held in the New Market Town Council Chambers on John Sevier Rd. in New Market although sometimes we meet at nearby historic locations.

Speakers discuss topics of local historical interest and refreshments are provided. Our meetings are open to the general public and except for our January dinner meeting are "free".

We hope you will make plans to attend one of our meetings.

Washington DC Bus Trip Cancelled

We fell short of the minimum number of participants required for our Washington DC bus trip so unfortunately we had to cancel it.

We will try another trip next year.

As always we are always interested in your suggestions for an interesting day trip.

Thanks to those who did register. Your registration fee will be refunded.

On Thursday evening, September 25, NMHS held their 2nd annual New Market Reflections meeting at the New Market Community Center (the old New Market School). Pictured above is NMHS Program Director Jim Douglas, acting as panel moderator, addressing the audience of 75+ NMHS members and visitors.
The panel members, left to right, are Janet Dellinger, Blair Dellinger, Allen Johnson, and Henry Buhl, a last minute substitute for Pat Brumback who was unable to attend.
It is easy to say that a good time was had by all.

Our next meeting: Thursday, November 20th 7:30 PM in the New Market Town Council Chambers.
