Our Mission is to serve as a leader in the collection, documentation, exhibition, interpretation, and preservation of works of contemporary and historic art and culture, with an emphasis on the heritage of the White Mountain region, for the education, inspiration, and enjoyment of the broadest possible audience.


The Conway Historical Society is a non-profit organization established for the collecting and preservation of articles and facts of local interest and the dissemination of the knowledge thereof. The CHS was founded in 1935 to preserve the rich and varied history of the Conways, through generous interests and growing membership of nearly 400 members.

In 1998, a bequest began a metamorphosis within the Society enabling us to look beyond the simpler art of caretaking our past; into a deeper and more influential role as the leader in conveying our many historical properties . In Oct. 2001 the St. Charles Church on Main street in Conway Village was purchased for use as the Salyards Art Center in memory of a part-time Conway resident, the late Florence McBride Salyards by her husband, Capt. Justin Salyards .
