Killingworth Historical Society

The Killingworth Historical Society was established in 1969 by a group of residents concerned with preserving the town's heritage. We are a 501(c)3 organization. The Historic al Society is funded by private donations, our annual membership drive, and fundraising events. We are not subsidized by the town and do not receive any public funding. Our home is at the town owned Parmelee farm. We lease the 1847 Parmelee farmhouse and garage from the town. The Historical Society is excited to finally have our new barn at the Parmelee Farm. It took several years of searching for just the right barn that would suit the needs of the Society and fit the property aesthetically. The Society appreciates the many supporters that helped with the project.

The Society's major function is to discover and collect material which may help to establish or illustrate the history of the area, its exploration, settlement, development and activities in peace and war, its progress throughout the years, and in today's world.

The Killingworth Historical Society also provides for the preservation of materials and their accessibility, as far as may be feasible, to all who wish to examine or study them. We co-operate with local officials in ensuring the preservation and accessibility of records and archives. The Society also undertakes the preservation of historic buildings, monuments, cemeteries, and markers.
