Pinkham Property 

Purchase To Go Before Town Meeting In March


The Barnstead Historical Society, at its special meeting on Jan. 10, voted to put the Pinkham Property Purchase for a vote at the Town Meeting in March.


Following discussion at a well attended meeting, moderator Ken Burt, co-chair of the future planning committee, called for a vote, which passed by a majority.


A second vote was taken on a motion to prepare the necessary warrant articles for Town Meeting, for the purchase, including use  of money in the Barnstead Historical Society’s Building Capital Reserve fund. This motion also passed.


Representatives from the Pinkham family in attendance, Alan Pinkham and Mary Ellen (Pinkham) Langer agreed to reduce the purchase price for the benefit of the Town.


The Pinkham Property is located at 96 South Barnstead Rd and includes a 1859 Cape with many improvements, attached shed and large barn with attached garage on 1.17 acres. This property, with 203 feet frontage, is contiguous with Town property next to the Bandstand and Center Fire Station.
