Farmer's Almanac Collection

Identifier: AC 580

Scope and Content

These almanacs were originally catalogued with books in the library. As the number of almanacs increased, it was determined that grouping them together in a collection would make them more accessible. Most of the almanacs are fragile due to their age. Collection consists of almanacs dating from 1841 to 1958. Some of the almanacs are in Spanish, but the majority of them are Old Farmer’s Almanacs published in Boston, Massachusetts and Portland, Maine in English.
