The Custer Sharp House is the headquarters of the Londonderry Arts and Historical Society. It is the former home of artists Bernadine Custer and Jimmy Sharp. This spring the exhibit space has been improved with new lighting and a display system. “These upgrades enable us to really showcase our art and artifacts,” says Annie Campbell, president of LAHS.
The mission of the Londonderry Arts and Historical Society is to be a beacon helping people understand the rich history and culture of our little town. Bringing stories of the past to light. Igniting curiosity and awareness of how earlier Londonderry residents lived and thrived. Presenting creative works by past and current artists that highlight the rich cultural dimensions of our area.
