Lyndeborough center maples to be recognized

LYNDEBOROUGH – These three maple trees beside the Town Hall driveway in Lyndeborough Center were planted in 1976 as part of the town’s Bicentennial celebrations.

The trees were donated by the Lyndeborough Improvement Society and dedicated to the three New Hampshire signers of the Declaration of Independence, Matthew Thornton, Josiah Bartlett and William Whipple.

The original wooden signs for each tree deteriorated long ago.

The Heritage Commission plans to have a new sign made for the side of Town Hall. The commission is also planning a historic marker for the center area similar to the one installed on the South Village Common last fall.
