Historical society to discuss centennial

0

GORHAM, N.H. – The Gorham Historical Society will meet at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 29, in the Conference Room, Family Resource Center, corner of Main and School streets.

After normal business is discussed, the meeting will focus on the centennial celebration of the former Grand Trunk Depot that has been the main museum of Gorham Historical Society since 1973.

The Grand Trunk Depot was built in 1907 by the Atlantic and St. Lawrence Railroad. The present building is the third station to be built by the railroad. The first building was known as “The White Mountain Station House” and sat where the tennis court is now. The second smaller station was on the opposite side of the road, down a bit from the present building.

Centennial celebration brochures will be presented, as well as some of the already planned-for activities for the special date of Aug. 11. Also available at the meeting will be the 2007 Gorham Historical Society Heritage calendars that sell for $3.50 each.

Anyone interested in being a part of the centennial celebration, whether to help in the planning or to take an active role in the celebration, is encouraged to attend the meeting.

Refreshments will be served. For more information, call Mary Jane Ames at 603-466-2085.
