PHS Inventory List

PHS Inventory List

The table below lists all of the items at the Plainfield Historical Society that have been entered into our inventory. It will be updated as we enter more items.

Searching: The best way to search is to use the filter spaces at the top of the table. By entering a subject or category, the table will show the records with matching entries. Use the “Show Entries” drop-down to increase the number of entries listed. Enter any word into the search bar just above the table: it may be a family name or a topic or a time period; any record which contains a matching word will be displayed. Clear the search box to get the full list back. In addition, you may re-order the list (including the list of search results) by using the arrows in the heading of any column. We have added “tags” to most records to provide related search terms. (See the “Item Tags” column at the far right.) Some records have multiple tags and those records will appear on the list multiple times, once for each tag

If you find a particular record of interest and would like more information about it, contact info@phsnh.orgbe sure to include the Item ID number in your email.
