Rev. Morrison House Reconstruction | December 8, 2014

The Londonderry Historical Society will have a special meeting next Monday, December 15th at 2:00pm in the Sunnycrest Room at Londonderry Town Hall to discuss the reconstruction of the c1725 Rev. Morrison House (a.k.a. the Proctor-Morrison-Perry House), formerly on Gilcreast Rd.

Past and present members (or anyone in the community) who want to share their input about the history and salvage of the building, methods of reconstruction and restoration, historic designations, funding this project, and ways to make it all happen are welcome to attend. Seven to Save? New Hampshire State Register of Historic Places designation? Grants? Lets meet and explore all avenues towards raising this historic structure.
Your input is welcome!

Fundraising Drive

July 14, 2014

Would you like to help the Londonderry Historical Society fulfill its mission of protecting our town’s past for future generations to enjoy? We’re a non-profit organization with no paid employees; all work is performed by our dedicated volunteers. Membership dues, along with public and private donations, are our main source of funds. With these funds we maintain our multi-building educational complex on Pillsbury Road, purchase and house Londonderry artifacts, and disseminate news and information about our activities and projects. All donations to our Society are gratefully accepted, are tax-deductible, and are put to good use for the benefit of the community. Here are some ways you can help:

Monetary Donations
You can make a donation by writing a check payable to “Londonderry Historical Society” and mailing it to:
Londonderry Historical Society
P.O. Box 136
Londonderry, N.H. 03053

Be sure to indicate if you’d like your gift to be applied to a specific cause, e.g., to the re-building of the Rev. Morrison House. We also accept appreciated assets for sale to benefit the Society.

In Memory Of
Another way to help is to request that gifts be made to the Society in memory of a loved one who has passed away. This is a wonderful way to honor someone who had a special interest in history during his or her lifetime, or who lived in or had a connection to our town. The Londonderry Historical Society appreciates being remembered in this way and all “in memory of” donations will be acknowledged in our semi-annual newsletter and annual report.

Planned Giving
Consider making a planned gift to the Society in the form of a bequest or beneficiary designation. A specific bequest can be made through your will, or you can name the Society as a beneficiary of your life insurance, retirement plan or bank account. Be sure to notify us when any type of planned giving is put into place so that we may properly thank you and supply information for your tax or estate planner.

Regardless of how you choose to donate, please provide your full name, address and email address so that we can contact you to answer questions and furnish information about our 503© status. You can reach us any time at info@londonderryhistory.org.

The Society would like to thank Ryan for all he accomplished during his tenure. The ideal candidate for this volunteer position will have experience or education related to the preservation of historical artifacts. Familiarity with PastPerfect software for intake and logging of artifacts would be a plus. If interested, please contact LHS President Ann Chiampa at 603-432-3708 or at a.chiampa@comcast.net.
