Around the corner from the Abbe Museum (see above), the society moved into this handsome 1918 former convent in 1997, where it showcases artifacts of life in the old days—dishware and photos from those grand old hotels that once dotted the town, exhibits on the noted landscape architect Beatrix Farrand, and so forth. Scrapbooks document the devastating 1947 fire, too.
