LISBON – The Lisbon Area Historical Society will hold its annual meeting on Wednesday, January 19, 2022 at 6:30pm at the Shared Ministry’s White Church on South Main Street in Lisbon. After a brief business meeting and election of officers, there will be a free public program beginning at 7pm, presented by Michael A. Bruno, author of Cruising New Hampshire History, a Guide to New Hampshire’s Roadside Historical Markers.
The program will be a great opportunity to learn more about the roadside markers we pass every day in our local travels, such as the Old Coal Kiln, Bath, N.H., Stone Iron Furnace, Rogers Rangers, First Ski School in America, Kilburn Stereoscopic Factory, and Frances Glessner Lee “Mother of Forensic Science,” as well as the historical markers throughout New Hampshire we see infrequently or have never seen at all. Come and learn some surprising historical facts about New Hampshire.
The event will also provide an opportunity for the public to view the architectural drawings for improvements to the historic former Lisbon Congregational Church Parish House at 9 Depot Street in Lisbon, the Lisbon Area Historical Society’s new property that has recently been listed on the New Hampshire State Register of Historic Places. The Society’s new headquarters and public museum will be in the Parish House.
A videorecording of the program will be posted on the Society’s website at http://www.lisbonareahistory.org and on Facebook. Masks are required for everyone attending the annual meeting and program on January 19. Refreshments “to go” will be available. For more information, please call 603-838-2003.
