The New Hampton Historical Society Presents:

A Walk Back in Time:  The Secrets of Cellar Holes
Tuesday, February 8th - 7:00 PM
Gordon-Nash Library, 69 Main Street, New Hampton

Northern New England is full of reminders of past lives: stone walls, old foundations, a century-old lilac struggling to survive as the forest reclaims a once-sunny dooryard.  It is a rich story about how one town set out  to  create an inventory of its cellar holes, piecing together clues in the landscape, a  project that can help landowners know what to do if they have archeological  sites on their land,  and help stimulate interest in a town’s future through its past.   Click here for the flyer.

Presenter Adair Mulligan has a runaway curiosity about the natural and cultural history of northern New England. Author of The Gunstock Parish, A History of Gilford, New Hampshire, she has also contributed to a number of publications, including Proud to Live Here in the Connecticut River Valley of Vermont and New Hampshire, Where the Great River Rises: An Atlas of the Upper Connecticut River, and Beyond the Notches: Stories of Place in New Hampshire’s North Country. Adair writes the quarterly Lyme Historian newsletter and is the author of several publications about Lyme’s past. She is co-leading a project to survey the town’s many cellar holes.  Adair is Executive Director of the Hanover Conservancy, and holds a master’s degree in Environmental Biology from Smith College.
The Historical Society thanks New Hampshire Humanities for providing our 2021-2022 Presenters and Programs. 

Our programs are free and open to the public. 
Please note:  Masks will be required at this indoor presentation.

Eversource Communication re: Possible New England Power Outages

Updates to Town Offices, Transfer Station and Police Dept Procedures
We are encouraging customers to continue making appointments to conduct business.  This helps us to advise you on what may be needed to complete your transaction so you don’t need to make multiple trips.  It also allows us time to prepare for your visit and have everything ready when you arrive.  Walk-ins are still welcome but will be taken as time allows, while anyone with an appointment will be taken in first.  At this time the Town Office doors will remain locked allowing us to limit the number of people in the building at any one time.  We will allow up to 2 parties of people into the lobby at one time, and request that you maintain physical distancing.  Following state and federal guidelines we are recommending face masks for anyone not fully vaccinated or if it makes you feel more comfortable. 
Town Clerk/Tax Collector          Mon., Tues., Wed.          8:00 am to 5:00 pm
Call 744-8454 for Appt.                Thursday                       10:00 am to 7:00 pm

The Transfer Station will be accepting recyclables at the window again, except for paper, due to the current market for those items.  This could change based on market conditions. 
The Police Department is allowing visitors into the lobby, with the recommendation that unvaccinated individuals wear a face mask and maintain physical distancing.

Beware of Scam
Police Chief Tyrrell has advised that there are two scams currently being circulated involving Eversource.
  • One is a demand for past due payments with a threat that a service truck is on it’s way to the residence to disconnect power.
  • The other is telling people they need a meter replacement to continue receiving service and the cost of replacement of $400.00 which they are asking for over the phone.

The History Corner
"Did Someone Say Snow?"
[+ new feature added to NHHS website – Oral Histories!]

As a warm-up to our coming wintry season we share some early photos of abundant snowflakes in a variety of “downtown” settings. These were taken in the late 1800s through the 1950s – and include one Fritz Robbins etching of skiers in front of Berry Hall at New Hampton School. The lead photo is in front of Pillars – which the Bickford family ran as a guest house for many years – and asks the question, “Did someone say snow?” Other photos include: a sleigh heading west on Main Street; deep ruts in the snow on Main Street; and a horse-drawn roller packing the snow. We hope you enjoy these previews of coming attractions! We also hope you enjoy having access to the fantastic Oral History Project that the NHHS assembled in 2013. See information on our updated website (below).

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.
