Chamberlin House Celebration!
The Woman’s Club of Concord is pleased to announce that their Chamberlin House Rehabilitation Project has been awarded a grant of up to $55,000 from the New Hampshire Land and Community Heritage Investment Program (LCHIP).
This public event will celebrate the club’s important efforts to preserve New Hampshire’s sense of place and history, as well as to honor the women who have contributed their time and hard work to this worthwhile cause. The event will feature complimentary refreshments, service awards and free tours of the historic Chamberlin House.
“We are deeply honored to receive the substantial grant from LCHIP,” explains Mia McGhee, President of the Woman’s Club of Concord. “The funds will be crucial in not only preserving the historic aspects of the Chamberlin House, but will also help us continue to provide safe and comfortable housing for as many as five woman in need. The Chamberlin House Celebration event is our way of recognizing all who have helped make this happen.” The Woman’s Club of Concord is a non-profit organization whose mission is to become a center for social service and civic activities, and to create a broader fellowship among the woman of the community.
Built in 1886, the historic Chamberlin House is a fine example of late Victorian architecture that lends its notable presence to downtown Concord, NH. In January of 1919, Nellie Chamberlin bequeathed the house and its furnishings to the Woman’s Club of Concord. Since that time the house has been maintained by the members of the Woman’s Club of Concord. This Chambelin House (44 Pleasant St., Concord, NH 03301) has been protected with assistance from the NH Land and Community Heritage Investment Program.Visit Event Website for More Info
