SHS Awarded 2nd LCHIP Grant
Schoolhouse Restoration Fundraising Off to a Great Start
Thanks to so many generous donors, we reached our goal to unlock our entire $7,500 dollar-for-dollar match pledge during NH Gives on June 7 - 8. We are in awe of the generosity you’ve shown to the Sutton Historical Society during NH Gives. Because of our generous donors, we were able to raise over $15,000 in 24 hours to further the restoration of Sutton’s historic landmarks.

Sutton is blessed with a wealth of historical buildings and landmarks. Such links to earlier times are unusual throughout the towns of modern day New Hampshire.
Your contributions are essential to help restore our historic meetinghouse and maintain the numerous historical buildings owned and managed by the Sutton Historical Society. Funds raised will help complete a generous matching grant from the New Hampshire Land and Community Heritage Investment Program (LCHIP) to restore the aging South Sutton Meetinghouse.
Meetinghouse Project 2
The Sutton Historical Society has received its second Land and Community Heritage Investment Program (LCHIP) grant award toward completion of the exterior renovation of the iconic South Sutton Meetinghouse. The Society is awarded a $20,000 matching grant to address the remainder of the exterior restoration, including repair of clapboard siding, trim and shutters, and painting the remaining restored building exterior. SHS received its first LCHIP matching grant in 2019 to help restore the three-stage meetinghouse tower topped by a four-sided dome, along with improvements to dated lightning protection identified in a 2019 historic building conditions assessment. Delayed by the pandemic, the first phase was completed in the late fall of 2021.
Your Donation Matters! We must raise the matching funds for the recent LCHIP award. We rely on your continued support to maintain all SHS historic properties. Please consider donating today, every penny helps! Here's how you can help!
SHS Wraps Up NH Preservation Alliance Grant
The full restoration of the eight twenty-five-over-twenty historic windows, and the twelve-over-eight window with sidelights above the meetinghouse’s entrance is complete. The work was performed by Arch Weathers Historic SashWorks and funded in part by a grant from the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance and The 1772 Foundation.
