Historical Society receives CARES Act grant
The Londonderry Historical Society has been awarded a general operating support grant for $3,000 from New Hampshire Humanities.
The grant is funded through the federal CARES program and the National Endowment for the Humanities and will help the Society cover operating expenses, present additional programming, and upgrade and increase its online presence, which will allow the group to reach Londonderry residents and history enthusiasts beyond the Londonderry community.
The Londonderry Historical Society’s mission is to preserve the best of Londonderry’s past for future generations. The society owns several properties at its 140 Pillsbury Road site, including the 1760 Morrison House, the 1859 Parmenter Barn, and the 1840 R.P. Clark Blacksmith Shop. The Society meets regularly on the third Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m. The public is always welcome. Winter meetings are at the Leach Library, and in the summer at the site on Pillsbury Road. The LHS is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, and all contributions are tax deductible. Visit londonderryhistory.org or Facebook at facebook.com/TownOfLondonderryNHHistoricalSociety.
