Gilmanton Historical Society Features Gilmanton Corners In July

 

A walking tour of Gilmanton Corners will be conducted at the Gilmanton Historical Society’s July meeting on Tuesday, July 25th.  Meet at the Academy (Town Offices) at 6 pm.  Learn about the Academy and how its presence influenced many of the other residential buildings in the Corners.

 

Brief histories of each of the houses in the Corners will be presented. Several prominent buildings which once stood in the Corners, but are now gone, will also be discussed and photographs shown. Wear good walking shoes. Light refreshments will be provided at ‘The Parsonage’ at the conclusion of the walk.

 

The Gilmanton Historical Society’s 2017 summer programs are offered on the 4th Tuesday of each month, May through September.   Focus on the Town’s history continues with a display of vintage clothing donated by Gilmanton residents on Saturday morning, July 29, 10 am until noon, at Old Town Hall in Gilmanton Iron Works.  On the evening of  August 22nd Pat Clarke tells us about Gilmanton Summer Hotels. The final program in September addresses the hurricane of 1938.
