This is the History of Necronmicon. It began back in 1982, in the first few years of Stone Hill. We had put on a couple of 1 and 2 day conventions (Stone Hill Launch I & II, UniversiCon) and decided we were ready to move up to a big 3 day convention. We planned to have it in the Fall, and around Halloween seemed appropriate. With this in mind, the name of Necronomicon was put foward and accepted.

Each of the year links below will take you to a page for that year. There is a brief description of where, when and who as well as pictures of the T-shirt, badge and program book. There may be some picture of the convention also if we can find some from that far back.

You can also see all of the T-shirt designs in one place on our T-Shirt History Page.
