Road Surface Management System Report Results

In March the town voted to approve appropriations to perform an inventory and evaluation of paved town roads using a road surface management software (RSMS) to develop a detailed management plan with recommendations for future improvements.  The Lakes Region Planning Commission performed this assessment and created this plan in partnership with the NH Department of Transportation and UNH Technology Transfer Center. Inventory and Assessments were entered into the RSMS software for analysis, prioritization, and generation of repair strategies. Repair strategies and a 10-year budget plan have been prepared in partnership with the town and presented within this report.  This management plan will be used as a tool by the Highway Dept.

New Hampton Historical Society Program

New Hampshire Abolitionist Nathaniel Peabody Rogers
 
Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 7:00 PM
Gordon-Nash Library, New Hampton

 
Our Presenter, Plymouth State University historian Rebecca R. Noel, tells the story of this feisty Granite State native, one of the so-called New Hampshire radicals. Rogers’ dedication to abolition and racial inclusion took several forms in his relatively short life.  Successful attorney–and father of eight–Nathaniel Peabody Rogers walked away from his Plymouth, NH, law practice in the 1830s for a dangerous and nearly unpaid gig editing a Concord-based anti-slavery newspaper, the Herald of Freedom. He sheltered fugitives in Plymouth and Concord, co-founded the integrated Noyes Academy in Canaan, networked with major abolitionists including Frederick Douglass and William Lloyd Garrison, and above all wrote passionate, searing essays against slavery and racism. Henry David Thoreau admired Rogers’ political zeal and his beautiful nature writing about the White Mountains, published under the pseudonym “The Old Man of the Mountain,” and abolitionist poet John Pierpont called Rogers the best newspaper writer in the United States. Rogers’ story shines a light on this lively reform era, and his contributions to the crusade for social justice still resonate today.  This program is sponsored by New Hampshire Humanities.

 
Our programs are free and open to the public.  Light refreshments will be served.

Bringing the Presence of the Past into the Present
NHS Students Petition for Music in the School Program… 195 Years Ago!
 
As we approach the 200th Birthday of New Hampton School (1821-2021), it is natural to feature some exciting pieces from the school’s long history. In 1824, the fourth year of “New Hampton Academy’s” existence, about two dozen students, “desirous of improving our selves in the Art or Science of Musick,“ submitted a petition to establish a singing school at the Academy. They were successful, as can be seen from the catalogue for the following year when the school hired, “Mr. Jeremiah Putney, Teacher of Vocal Musick.”
 
Below is a transcript of the petition, followed by its image. Note the many familiar names from the town’s history – Dolloff, Kelley, Hannaford, Sanborn et al – as townspeople eagerly sent their children to an academy that was already drawing students from as far away as Boston and Vermont.

Musical
 We the subscribers being desirous of improving our selves in the Art or Science of Musick do agree for our selves and with each other to house a singing school at the New Hampton Academy the ensuing winter, at least three months – two evenings in a week – to commence on Monday evening the Sixth day of Dec next at Six o’clock and end at Nine. And we further agree to have it one month longer if two thirds of the Scholars should be in favor of it. And we further agree to pay severally our equal proportions and defraying the expenses of the same. We also appoint Ira Gordon and Thomas Sanborn our Agents to agree with some suitable person to instruct the School and see him paid. Any Scholar may be dismissed by making a request the first night of the School.
