New Hampshire Land and Community Heritage Investment Program (LCHIP) has
granted the Town Of Langdon, through its Heritage Commission, $53,324 for
rehabilitation work on its original 1803 Meetinghouse.
LCHIP is an independent state
authority that makes matching grants to NH communities and non-profits to
conserve and preserve New Hampshire's most important natural, cultural and
historic resources. Through this investment Program every $1 in resources
brings back more than seven times local, private, federal funds, and helps
to secure NH's greatest business advantage: The quality of life and
traditional values of our state.
To see the complete press release,
Langdon maintains the tradition of the New England Town Meeting Day and has done
so every year since 1803 when construction of
its Meetinghouse was completed. No other
building in New Hampshire has held as many Town Meetings as ours.
We are rehabilitating this historic building within the Secretary of the
Interiorís Guidelines for Historic Preservation in order that we continue this
tradition in this historic building.
We ask for your donations to assist in this work.

The Langdon Heritage Commission was formed in 2007
to properly recognize, use, preserve and protect our significant, historic,
cultural, natural and aesthetic assets. In so doing we not only preserve our
buildings and land, we build community connections, establish trust among
diverse groups, encourage volunteerism, develop community leaders and enhance
the livability of our community.
