Partnering with Wolfeboro Heritage Commission - Maggie Stier

The Wolfeboro Heritage Commission is hosting a free public presentation on Saving Historic Barns on Wednesday, March 15 from 6 - 8 pm at the Wolfeboro Town Hall.  This is appropriate for residents of all towns in the area.

 Beverly Thomas, the barn preservation specialist at the NH Preservation Alliance in Concord, is the featured presenter.  As part of the Alliance's year-long campaign, 52 Barns in 52 Weeks, this program will include a PowerPoint on how people can take action to retain historic barns which are a key part of the architectural heritage of New Hampshire.  

 The program will discuss the various tools and strategies that are available to help preserve these iconic structures, including the statewide barn preservation easement program, which offers tax relief to owners who agree to maintain their historic barns.  Applications for that program will be available at the presentation and must be submitted by April 15 to gain tax relief for 2017.  

 Enter the Wolfeboro Town Hall from the back of the building where there is parking and elevator access to the second floor Great Hall. 

 For more information call Maggie Stier, chair of the Wolfeboro Heritage Commission at 603-344-1726.
