Established in 2007

The New Market Historical Society, Inc (NMHS) encourages the discovery and preservation of historical homes, buildings and other significant sites along with pictures, documents related to the New Market area.

The Town of New Market has been listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places since 1972. There are 40 pre-Civil War buildings in the town.

The New Market Historical Society begins the year with its annual dinner meeting on the 4th Thursday in January. It then meets at 7:30 pm the fourth Thursday of March, May, July and September as well as the third Thursday in November. The meetings are usually held in the New Market Town Council Chambers on John Sevier Rd. in New Market although sometimes we meet at nearby historic locations.

Speakers discuss topics of local historical interest and refreshments are provided. Our meetings are open to the general public and except for our January dinner meeting are "free".

We hope you will make plans to attend one of our meetings.

On Thursday evening, November 20, about 50 attendees listened to Donna Neary's presentation entitled "What's a woman doing here?".
Donna, a historical artist, NMHS Charter Member, and retired Lt. Colonel, detailed her distinguished career as a combat and field artist for the United States Marine Corps. Donna displayed numerous examples of her commercial and historical artwork from children's books and many national magazines. She also displayed artwork from her visit to South Korea, north of the Arctic Circle and Somalia.
