Letter To The Editor
It’s another success for the Gilmanton Year Round Library! Thank You
to everyone who attended Doug Towle’s Old House Tour on Saturday,
August 3rd. The event attracted approximately 200 guests who were
able to visit 9 homes, and many of those attended the reception at
The Mack House, Doug’s current restoration project. Doug has been
restoring homes in Gilmanton for over 30 years and his positive
influence on the town cannot be understated.
Many thanks to all of the homeowners who agreed to share so readily
– it wouldn’t have been possible without them. They were gracious
and informative, sharing the history and beauty of some of
Gilmanton’s old homes.
Through the generosity of both townspeople, and people from afar,
the Gilmanton Year Round Library raised over $5,000. A good time
was had by all, with numerous requests for a repeat performance in
the near future.
Chairman, Gilmanton Year-Round Library Board of Trustees
