Derryfield Old Home Day! 25 May 2019

As part of the larger Nutfield 300th Anniversary celebration, the Huse House on Mammoth Road will be hosting the Derryfield Old Home Day on Saturday, 25 May 2019.  In this house at 97 Mammoth Road, 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 for 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 will be tax deductible and will assist in bringing a full program from 10am to 4pm.  This will be a fun event for kids, so be sure to bring them along, too.

If you are able to help, please contact Monique Labbe, the owner of the Huse House and a member of the Nutfield 300th Steering Committee or contact the Manchester Historic Association at 603-622-7531.  Please share this with anyone who may be interested in attending or helping on May 25th.  Thank you in advance, and we look forward to seeing you at the Derryfield Old Home Day.
