Progress is being made towards erecting the Reverend Morrison house and the Litchfield carriage shed with the help of Benson’s Lumber. If you drive past the Society’s complex you might catch a glimpse of the carriage shed frame which has been attached to the side of the Parmenter Barn. Mr. Tate donated over 200 pieces of old timber and lumber. Some of the wood has been used for the erection of the carriage shed and some may be used for the Reverend Morrison house. Bill Bringhurst has replaced a portion of the front sill and the passage door on the Clark blacksmith shop. Thanks to Bill and other members who provided muscle power for this task.
Ryan Kinghorn has been appointed as the new Curator for the Historical Society. Ryan comes to the Historical Society with a wealth of knowledge and experience in collection management and grant writing. He was formerly the Secretary of the Medieval Society at Plymouth Historical Society. The Londonderry Historical Society purchased the software PastPerfect and a new laptop for Ryan to start documenting the Society’s collection.
