Manchester Historic Association's Reseach Center
Established in 1896 by local residents as they commemorated the fifty-year anniversary of their city's incorporation, Manchester Historic Association works to preserve and share the history of the community. Since 1931, the organization has operated a research center within their headquarters building which was made possible through the financial support of local businessman Frank P. Carpenter. The organization also operates the Millyard Museum which offers a variety of exhibits that utilize artifacts and documents from their growing collection.
