To The Volunteers and Donors
Langdon, and more generally, New Hampshire, is a wonderful community. This
is demonstrated by the generosity of the many friends and neighbors who made the
rehabilitation of the 209 year old Landon Meetinghouse foundation a success. The
citizens of Langdon recognize the importance of this historic structure and
voted to contribute significant funds to its rehabilitation. Many Langdonians
went even further and sent donations. Others volunteered time and talent.
The New Hampshire Preservation Alliance recognized the Meetinghouse a 2008
“Seven to Save” historic treasures in New Hampshire. The Terra Nova Foundation,
directed by Rob Stephenson and Christopher Bean, were early contributors of
funds. The Marquis George MacDonald Foundation and New Hampshire Electric Coop
made a generous donation. LCHIP subsequently granted $99,600 toward the
foundation rehabilitation and the Moose Plate Program contributed $9000. Ted
Chivers of All Seasons Construction, general contractors, worked seamlessly with
our volunteers and with Richard Monahon, Architects, whose guidance was
invaluable to our group. Brendan’s Concrete provided a substantial discount.
Cold River Materials donated gravel and stone and Woodell & Daughters Forest
Products donated wood. Rodney Campbell, a local builder was indispensable. He
donated many hours of his time as technical advisor and clerk of the works. John
Gulardo photographed every phase of the work.
The members of the Langdon Heritage Commission are happy to have worked with
such a wonderful group of creative and tireless people. And there were two super
volunteers who are due special thanks. Landscapes by Jay Grant donated over
$30,000 of equipment operating time and countless hours of additional time and
labor. Dave Barton matched Jay hour for hour sometimes working twelve hour days.
We can not thank them enough for their contribution to our community.
