Dr. John S.H. Fogg gave the land for the library, along with his personal collection of American history books, and an endowment. The library was named in honor of his father, William Fogg, whose homestead still sits on library property. Dr. John Fogg also bequeathed his estate to fund the continued operation of the library. You can visit the restored Fogg Homestead and see personal artifacts from the Fogg family and the historic Fogg collections on Dr. Fogg’s Birthday, at the Victorian Tea, and by appointment.
