Tuesday, November 19, 2019 at 7:00 PM

Gordon-Nash Library, New Hampton
The Judge, the Library, the School:  Honoring the Past to Better Serve the Future 
Join us for an evening of surprises as we learn more about Judge Nash and his vision for New Hampton and environs. Find out who put the dash in “Gordon-Nash” and share in the discovery of two 19th century New Hampton School sisters, Cornelia and Emily Bradley, who forged highly successful careers as popular authors based on their years in the village. Follow the intertwining course of the library, the town and “the academy” as it developed in the capable hands of the Bickford family and other early town/school mothers and fathers. Presenters are NHHS Board members Kent Bicknell, Independent Scholar and NHHS Historian, and Jerrica Crowder, Library Director at New Hampton School and NHHS Curator.

Out programs are free and open to the public.  Light refreshments will be served.

Free Water Test for Precinct Customers

In response to customer requests expressed at the October 21st NHVP monthly Commissioners’ meeting, the Precinct is offering its customers the opportunity to have their household water tested for Lead and Copper.  Testing will be at no cost to the customer.
Following is the process to follow should you wish to participate:
On SUNDAY, November 10, 2019: 
Pick up your sample bottle at the New Hampton Community Church parking area on Church Lane between the hours of 2:30 pm and 4:30 pm.

On MONDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 2019: 
Follow these Lead and Copper Sample Collection Instructions.
Drinking water samples should be collected where water is used regularly such as your kitchen or bathroom sink.
Lead and Copper samples are collected as “first draw”, generally first thing in the morning, to evaluate if the water may be corrosive to your home plumbing or fixtures.

  1. Tape off the sampling tap at least 6 hours before sampling to insure that no water is used during the stagnation period.
  2. Return after the tap has set unused for at least 6 hours such as first thing in the morning.
  3. Fill in your address, date and time on the sample bottle label.
  4. Do not flush the line.
  5. Do not remove the faucet aerator.
  6. Place the sample bottle under the COLD WATER faucet, and fill the sample bottle from the first draw of stagnant water. Close the bottle tightly.

On  MONDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 2019:
Upon completing your sample collection return it to a Precinct representative on Monday morning at the Church Lane parking area between the hours of 7:00 am and 10:00 am.
Road Surface Management System Report Results

In March the town voted to approve appropriations to perform an inventory and evaluation of paved town roads using a road surface management software (RSMS) to develop a detailed management plan with recommendations for future improvements.  The Lakes Region Planning Commission performed this assessment and created this plan in partnership with the NH Department of Transportation and UNH Technology Transfer Center. Inventory and Assessments were entered into the RSMS software for analysis, prioritization, and generation of repair strategies. Repair strategies and a 10-year budget plan have been prepared in partnership with the town and presented within this report.  This management plan will be used as a tool by the Highway Dept. 

Click here for the results of that report.

Bringing the Presence of the Past into the Present

New Hampton’s First Library Was Not Named Gordon-Nash!
Many of us grew up benefitting from the foresight of our townsman, Judge Stephen G. Nash (1822-1894), who formed a private non-profit corporation that became the Gordon-Nash Library. Supported by large gifts from his estate, land was purchased, a beautiful building built, thousands of his books donated, and an endowment created to support future operations. The library opened in 1896 and today continues to serve “residents, students, and sojourners,” exactly as he envisioned.
Before Judge Nash was born, however, an industrious group of our town’s leading citizens banded together to form, “The New-Hampton Social Library.” With the blessings of the State of New Hampshire, on June 14, 1813 a charter was granted to William B. Kelley, Samuel Kelley 3rd, Thomas Simpson, Joseph R Kelley, Nicholas M Taylor, Ebenezer Sandborn, Joseph Robinson and Daniel Smith to form a library. Unlike the funding for most town libraries (taxes) or the Gordon-Nash (a private endowment), the New-Hampton Social Library was supported through subscriptions – fees paid by the users – and thus not really open to everyone.
While the New Hampshire Historical Society in Concord, NH now holds the early records of the New-Hampton Social Library, the Fire Vault in the Gordon-Nash Library has two titles from this early cultural landmark. Both titles are religious, and both, according to their bookplates (below), could be checked-out for ten weeks at a time. Although the content was ponderous, and the time and the evening light scarce in the early 1800s, one would hope that patrons were able to read a book from cover-to-cover in less than two-and-a-half months!

New-Hampton Social Library
Annual Meeting fourth Monday in September
To be returned in ten weeks.
At a later date the books were kept in the house of John and Abigail Nash, parents of Judge Nash, and one wonders if this early exposure might be where the Judge, to our great fortune, developed the traits of a “19th century bookworm!” With any luck, another volume, or two (or three) from our first library will surface in a bookshelf in someone’s home, or a trunk in the attic. Don’t worry, we won’t collect any overdue notices if you have gone beyond those original ten weeks!
