The N.H. Preservation Alliance’s fifth online auction was a great success this year, exceeding both our participation and fund-raising goals. The auction proceeds support the restoration, rehabilitation and stewardship of our Seven to Save properties and other old farms, buildings and barns around the state.
More than 100 people from New Hampshire and 13 other states participated in this year’s auction. The auction items ranged from insider tours of special homes and gardens to quick getaways around New Hampshire, skiing and golf packages, carriage rides, workshops and expert consultations and services.
The Preservation Alliance would like to thank all the bidders and donors for their enthusiastic participation and generous support. Calls for assistance continue to rise each year as property owners, investors and community leaders look for creative solutions for the preservation of the irreplaceable landmarks that are so critical to New Hampshire’s communities and economy.
This 2019 auction’s great variety of quality experiences, goods and services were donated by generous individuals, businesses and organizations around the state who care about and wish to protect New Hampshire’s distinctive history and heritage.
