HOLDERNESS — What is the National Register of Historic Places? What restrictions does listing a building place on the owner? Join the Squam Lakes Association on Thursday, September 12 at 7 p.m. as it hosts Elizabeth Durfee Hengen, a historic preservation consultant from Concord. Elizabeth will explain what the National Register of Historic Places is, the process of nominating a property, and the benefits of listing.
Protecting the cultural heritage of the Squam Lakes watershed is a natural complement to the ongoing efforts to conserve land and water quality.
Hengen has been working with the Squam Lakes National Register Initiative, a group composed of members from the Squam Lakes Association, Squam Lakes Conservation Society, Rockywold Deephaven, Chocorua Chapel Association and several historical societies from the area surrounding the lake who seek to preserve the unique character of the watershed by recognizing and protecting historic places: iconic barns, farms, camps and landscape features.
This free program will take place at the SLA Resource Center, 534 Route 3, Holderness. All are welcome. For more information call (603) 968-7336.
The Squam Lakes Association is dedicated to conserving for the public benefit the natural beauty, peaceful character and unique resource values of the Squam Lakes and surrounding watershed. To learn about the SLA and upcoming events visit www.squamlakes.org.
