We invite anyone who is interested in preserving Rye history to join the society.

Our extensive image collection is available for viewing both online and in our museum.

Through special exhibits and regular programs and museum hours, the society aims to engage people in the vital aspects of Rye's history so that current issues may be better understood and future plans respect the natural and human history of the town.
