Old town Hall Preservation efforts

The Town Hall Preservation Committee is working to rehabilitate our old Town Hall, built in 1828, which served our community so well for over 180 years before being closed in 2008 when town offices moved to the former Village School.

The long-term plan is to remove the second floor in the main building and eventually return it to a meeting hall for use by various community groups and rental for private events.

The Town Hall Preservation Committee is preparing an application for a Conservation License (Moose) Plate grant from the State of NH for repair and painting of the tin ceiling in the main hall section of the Old Town Hall.  Fortunately when the 2nd floor was expanded in 1975, the wall partitions were placed below the relief/design of the tin panels; they did not cut into the tin pieces, so there will be far less repair of the tin than there might have been.

I’ve created an online petition.  http://www.thepetitionsite.com/443/183/670/help-us-get-a-grant-for-our-old-town-hall/

PLEASE SIGN IF YOU SUPPORT OUR PROJECT AND THE APPLICATION FOR REPAIR OF THE BEAUTIFUL TIN CEILING.  Any comment you can add will personalize the issue.

If you prefer, there is a paper copy in the hallway outside of the Town Clerk’s Office in the Municipal Building.  These petitions will accompany our application to the NH Division of Historical Resources.

Feel free to share with friends and colleagues.

Thank you!
