The Trustees of the Windham Museum are comprised of three (3) individuals appointed by the Board of Selectmen to three (3) year terms. Residents interested in volunteering their time as a Museum Trustee are encouraged to contact the Town Administrator.
The Trustees are charged with the development and oversight of the recently established Town Museum. The Museum is located in the historic Armstrong Building at 3 North Lowell Road, and will house purchased, recovered, and donated artifacts of Windham's past. Currently serving as Trustees are:
Jean Manthorne, Chairman
Although it is not apparent from the outside, there continues to be a lot of activity inside the Windham Museum in preparation for a permanent opening. You may recall that, several years ago, the interior of the Armstrong Building was restored as closely as possible to its original state. Since then, the Museum Trustees, Dennis Root, Kim Monterio, and Jean Manthorne have been working to restore the Museum artifacts and create displays to showcase and secure these historic items. The final stage of the project, which must be completed prior to the official opening, is the cataloguing of the entire collection using a software system called Past Perfect, which is specifically designed for museums. Members of the Windham Historical Society have been using their monthly meetings to catalogue artifacts in the collection.
