NH groups honored for preserving landmarks
AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — The state preservation alliance is honoring groups that have worked to preserve iconic landmarks.
Preservation Alliance’s executive director Jennifer Goodman says their work has helped citizens and boosted community development.
Groups that received awards at a Friday event include the town of Hancock and First Congregational Church of Hancock for the restoration, rehabilitation and stewardship of the 1820 Hancock Meetinghouse.
The alliance also honored the Wentworth-Coolidge Mansion Commission that worked with the state on a comprehensive window repair project at the rare home of New Hampshire’s royal governor.
The state department of transportation also restored the Stewartstown Bridge, a metal truss bridges long considered an “endangered species.”
