FAIR HAVEN — The Fair Haven Historical Society announces several upcoming activities that share some of our rich history. On Sunday, August 15th , from 2-4 p.m. the society will be working with the Fair Haven Volunteer Fire Department to host a family friendly event to share the history of the firefighters here in Fair Haven. Visitors will be able to look at some of the research and of course the firefighting equipment used over the course of our history. We thank the Fair Haven Firefighters for sharing their space and their stories about the work they do. Light refreshments will be served. This event will take place at the Fire Station in Fair Haven located on North Park Place in Fair Haven.
The Society is always happy to receive donations to our collection. Paul and Roy Allen-Webber from the Maplewood Inn have recently sold the property. They have donated several items of historic interest and value to the Society. Our sincere thanks and best wishes to them in their new home. They have been wonderful supporters of the Society. We will miss them.
The Society is putting on the finishing touches on our second book about Fair Haven. This book will contain information about architecture, the South School, and different local businesses. We will be pre-selling the book at our summer events and at the market in Fair Haven that is held on Fridays from 4-7 p.m. These books will make a great gift to family and friends who grew up in the area.
The Town of Fair Haven is updating their phones. Our phone in the office is currently out of service. For more information or questions, please contact Ceil Hunt at or Lorraine Brown at [email protected]
