The Elman W. Campbell Museum is a non-profit, educational institution. It was created for the purpose of collecting, preserving, researching, studying and interpreting artifacts related to the history of the Town of Newmarket from the time of the first Quaker settlers in 1801, up until thirty years ago.
The museum is located in the former Land Registry Office built in 1884. We bring history to life through exhibits, programs and events to show how Newmarket has changed over more than two hundred years.
We have lots of artifacts in our museum. An artifact is something that was made during the past that represents some part about early human life. Museums help care for artifacts in their collection.
