LCHIP at work in District 11

The Friends of the Acworth Meetinghouse, in partnership with the Acworth Cemetery Trustees, were recently awarded $34,000 to document and rehabilitate the Acworth Horse Sheds, located behind the Acworth Meetinghouse. Most NH townsย had community horse sheds, but as transportation evolved away from the horse and buggy, most of these structures were abandoned or torn down. The Acworth Horse Sheds is one of only nine known remaining examples in New Hampshire of this once ubiquitous building type. The predecessor of the Friends of the Acworth Meetinghouse, the Acworth Meetinghouse Restoration Project, received LCHIP grants in 2007 and 2010 to rehabilitate the Acworth Meetinghouse. The project was honored by the National Trust for Historic Preservation in 2011.
