My blog post on the 2010 Seven to Save
|The Derry Upper Village Hall|
hosted the Taylor Family Reunion this summer
and was on the first list in 2006.
It is still waiting to be "saved".
In 2009 the First Parish Church in Derry, founded by the original Scots Irish Settlers of Nutfield, was named to the “Seven to Save List”. I wrote about this at my post on 1 November 2009, which you can read at this link http://nutfieldgenealogy.blogspot.com/2009/11/first-parish-church-derry.html On the first list in 2006 the Derry Upper Village Hall Meetinghouse was also listed, which is located across the street from the First Parish Church.
