Grafton Town Library Added to New Hampshire State Register of Historic Places

The New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources announced that the State Historical Resources Council added the Grafton Town Library and 5 other properties to the New Hampshire State Register of Historic Places.
Up until 1921, the Grafton Town Library existed simply as a traveling collection of books. The current Colonial Revival building that houses the library was constructed in 1921, and its concrete blocks were created on site using volunteer labor. The library is considered as Grafton’s way of paying tribute to the importance of learning.
Additional properties added are Chichester’s Town House, Freedom Village Bandstand, Keene;s Horatio Colony House Museum, Red Hill House in Moultonborough, and Nelson’s 1846 Greek Revival Town Hall
