MANCHESTER, N.H. – Final week, the Currier Museum of Art was named as a receiver of a grant from the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance and the 1772 Foundation to support restore the historic Chandler Property.
A full of $7,500 was awarded to repair service and swap 5 historic windows at the Chandler House, which will allow for the restoration of the original fenestration of the principal façade.
“The rehabilitation of the Chandler Property will generate a historic home for the full group. The historic rooms, which attribute first stained glass, carved wood, and embossed Japanese wallpaper, will lengthen the galleries of the Currier Museum of Artwork even though offering conference areas for local community teams. We are grateful to the NH Preservation Alliance for its help of this historic treasure.” Alan Chong, Director, Currier Museum of Artwork.
“We are so delighted to be able to make these grants to worthy jobs in several locations of the state, from a smaller city with about 600 people to the state’s major town,” stated Beverly Thomas, system director of the Preservation Alliance. “These are neighborhood assets that are culturally sizeable and really should be preserved.”
A whole of $125,000 was specified to sixteen non-gain companies in New Hampshire by the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance and 1772 Foundation.
Created in 1865, the historic Chandler Home was saved from demolition in 2020, and the Currier Museum bought the property in 2021.
