To The Daily Sun,
On behalf of the Town of Center Harbor Heritage Commission, I would like to thank the generous donors who have contributed more than $5,500 thus far to our Heritage Fund.
The commission especially appreciates the support provided by the Penny Pitou and Milo Pike Charitable Fund of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. These donations, plus a grant from the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance, will help fund our project to rehabilitate the old Center Harbor Town House. Our ultimate goal is to return this beautiful historic building to public use for civic and community meetings and cultural events.
Listed on the New Hampshire Register of Historic Places, the old Town House sits on its original site at the corner of Route 3/Daniel Webster Highway and Waukewan Road. Built in 1843 as a Greek Revival style meetinghouse, it was used for Town Meetings and voting until 1964 and as a one-room schoolhouse from 1933 until 1946. Sadly, despite its proud history, the Town House now lies vacant and is used only for storage.
Anyone who would like help us rehab the old Town House may mail a tax-deductible donation to: The Town of Center Harbor Heritage Commission, PO Box 140, Center Harbor, NH 03226, payable to: The Heritage Fund.
Karen Ponton, Secretary
Center Harbor Heritage Commission
