Merrimack Historical Society’s old restaurants on display at Town Hall
Friday, January 10, 2014
Do you remember Davito’s Restaurant? Mansion House? Poultryrama? Merremac Smokehouse? The Historical Society has featured the latest display at Town Hall and the theme is Merrimack’s Restaurants – Then and Now. The display is at the top of the stairs in the old Town Hall. It will be there for the next few months.
The speakers at the Merrimack Historical Society meetings will have their programs appear on the town’s cable channel, for all to see. Thanks to Ron Ketchie, Bob L’Heureux and the town’s media department for their help. The first one features Eber Currier on Currier Orchards on Peaslee Road, the history of the land belonging to the Spalding family and the adjacent Old King’s Highway.
Cristina Ashijain will bring her program on “Country Estates of New Hampshire” to the Merrimack Public Library at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 21. This program is hosted by the Historical Society and the library jointly, thanks to a grant from the NH Humanities Council. It’s free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. Due to limited space, make reservations at 424-5021.
