The Grafton Historical Society Museum is full of artifacts, documents, and displays from Grafton’s manufacturing and farming days. There are also numerous personal items preserved, ranging from elegant ladies dresses and china, to civil war diaries and uniforms. There are brand new shoe samples from Grafton’s shoe factories, historically accurate dioramas of the mills and town center and even furniture manufactured in Grafton. The archives are available for research by appointment.
