To organize, coordinate the Town's museum and maintain its contents.
To advise the Board of objects, structures or other features in the Town with historic significance that may be in danger of being lost or damaged.
To assess the community for key community places, buildings and historic resources and develop an historic preservation policy that will enable the Town to designate historic structures.
