The Laconia Historical and Museum Society, a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization is dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of all aspects of the history and culture of the City of Laconia, New Hampshire including Lakeport and The Weirs. Founded originally as the Laconia Historical Society in 1951, the organization was restructured in 1980 as a New Hampshire Voluntary Charitable Organization. In 1994, a second group, known as the Laconia Museum Society was incorporated in the city. The two organizations merged in 1998 and the surviving entity was named the Laconia Historical and Museum Society (LHMS).
