OUR MISSION STATEMENT
The Foundation was formed by J.C. Kenneth Poore and the original incorporators so that the farmstead would serve as an historical and educational site illustrating a way of life that existed prior to rural electrification.
The Conservancy endeavors to: continue and propagate the traditional spirit, values, way of life and philosophy of the settlers of the headwaters of the Upper Connecticut River Valley.
*The Poore Farm Museum is a historic homestead / settlement documenting one family's life from the 1830's to the 1980s. The house, barn and outbuildings are all in original condition and reflect their use and era.
The feeling one gets when you enter the homestead is to step back in time, to a time that existed prior to rural electrification of the northern most regions of NH.
* The Poore Family Foundation will be hosting out-of-door concerts in the Museum's Courtyard. Parking will be in the south field, watch for signs.
Handicap parking and drop-off and pick-up is in front of the Museum.
Parking attendants will be on hand to assist.
* Concerts are sponsored by The Poore Family Foundation For North Country
Conservancy. Funding is provided in part, by: The Tillotson North Country
Foundation and the NH Charitable Foundation.
* Please support The Poore Family Foundation, a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit
Organization. All contributions are fully tax deductible.
