Gilmanton’s Greatest Views - For Everyone, Forever! Campaign Reaches Goal


The Trustees of the Gilmanton Land Trust, in partnership with Five Rivers Conservation Trust and the Gilmanton Conservation Commission, are pleased to announce the successful completion of a major fund raising campaign to conserve some of the most recognized special places in Gilmanton.


The conservation project includes: the view of much of Gilmanton and the Belknap Mountains beyond, from a hay field  atop Frisky Hill on Route 107; two hay fields along Route 107 overlooking Loon Pond with views of Mount Kearsarge and Ragged Mountain to the west; an open hay field on Loon Pond Road; and a parcel on Meetinghouse Road, with 1,000+ feet of frontage on Meetinghouse Pond, a productive hay field and a portion of a snowmobile trail maintained by the Gilmanton Snowmobile Association. (This pond is the second largest water body in Gilmanton to remain completely undeveloped.) The Meetinghouse Pond tract also has a unique 200± year old stone structure built and used for processing flax, the only one known to exist in the state! 


During 2013, the Land Trusts will complete the conservation easements and other essential documents before conveying the Meetinghouse Pond and Frisky Hill Viewpoint tracts to the Town of Gilmanton, to be managed by the Conservation Commission for agriculture, forestry, and appropriate public access, including snowmobiling, fishing, and hunting. The remaining two tracts will be sold on the open market, ideally to farmers, abutters, or others committed to maintaining the fields.  Their uses of the land will have to be conservation oriented, such as agriculture or forest management, and must be consistent with the use limitations described in the conservation easement documents.

GCC Food Pantry And Thrift Shop News


The Christmas season is over, and Wow, Wow, Wow, what an incredibly blessed season it was! 


The GCC Food Pantry Committee would like to say a huge Thank You to all who donated to our programs at the pantry.  Through the enormous generosity of so many individuals, groups and the employees of many businesses in and out of Gilmanton, we were able to provide winter outerwear and Christmas gifts for 66 children in our town, as well as put together 46 food baskets for families and individuals in need. Whether you dropped off bags or boxes of food, donated turkeys and hams, sent a check or left money at the thrift shop, donated new or used winter clothing or toys, participated in the “adopt a child” program, took a tag from the tree at the Gilmanton Community Church or the Gilmanton PTA “giving tree,” made or purchased hats and mittens for the “mitten tree,” worked at the pantry/thrift shop during the holidays, helped shop, checked and packed gifts or outerwear, or helped to pack food baskets, we are so very grateful to you and we just can never say thank you enough.  You have blessed someone’s life and you helped to make their Christmas brighter.


We would also like to announce the winner of our “Quilt Raffle.”  Allison Borowy of Meeting House Road in Gilmanton was the very lucky winner of the quilt that was made and donated by Victoria Carroll-Parkhill. We thank all who purchased tickets for the raffle which raised $322.50 for the food pantry. Again, thank you so much to Victoria and congratulations to Allison Borowy.


Everything in the thrift shop will be 50% Off beginning on Wednesday, January 9th. The sale will run until Saturday, February 2nd. Come on in and check out all the great clothing, footwear and accessories for the entire family still available and now 50% Off our already great prices.  There are unfortunately still many cold, winter days left on the calendar, so come down and get something new to spark up the families’ wardrobes!


As always, if you wish to make a donation of food or clothing to the GCC Food Pantry and Thrift Shop, we ask that you bring it to the shop during our business hours. Food can be left in one of the collection boxes located at the Academy Building, the Gilmanton School or the Year Round Library. Checks can be mailed to us at PO Box 6, Gilmanton Iron Works, 03837.  


We are located on Route 140 in Gilmanton Iron Works, across from the Iron Works Market. We are open on Monday 1pm – 5pm, Wednesday 3pm – 7pm, and Saturday 10am – 2pm. Parking is located in the Gilmanton Community Church parking lot just west of the shop.


We thank you for your continued support of the Food Pantry and all of its programs. Remember that sales from the Thrift Shop go to support the Pantry.

A reception for David Russell to recognize his service to the community of Gilmanton was well attended by family, friends, constituents, and fellow legislators.


David was presented with a gift of a clock in a piece of granite in the shape of the State of NH which also had a personalized engraved plaque.


Many people donated to this special gift. Any amount over the cost of the gift will be donated to the Gilmanton Food Pantry.  Thanks to all who supported this event.
