As part of the larger Nutfield 300th Anniversary celebration, the Huse House on Mammoth Road will be hosting Derryfield Old Home Day on Saturday 5/25/19. In this house, next to the old Center Cemetery, was located Manchester’s first post office from 1831-1840. The home was also a working farm, tavern, meeting hall, general store and held books of the Derryfield Social Library.
In partnership with our friends at the Manchester Historic Association, the day will feature lectures, a Concord mail coach, militia re-enactors, tours of the cemetery and house, and visits with members of other historic groups. You will not want to miss this event and the chance to learn more about Derryfield, our area’s name before it was Manchester, and our town center prior to the Amoskeag Mills and Elm Street.
As this will be a free event, we are seeking sponsorships from our neighbors and local businesses to offset costs. Your donation is tax-deductible and will assist us in bringing you a full program from 10-4. This will be a fun event for kids, so make sure to bring them along.
If you are able to help, please complete the form below and return ASAP. Otherwise, please share with others who may be interested in helping or attending on May 25th. Thank you in advance and we look forward to seeing you at Derryfield Old Home Day.
