Old house tour a success

It’s another success for the Gilmanton Year Round Library! Thank you to everyone who attended Doug Towle’s Old House Tour on Aug. 3. The event attracted approximately 200 guests who were able to visit nine homes, and many of those attended the reception at The Mack House, Towle’s current restoration project. Towle has been restoring homes in Gilmanton for more than 30 years, and his positive influence on the town cannot be understated.

Many thanks to all of the homeowners who agreed to share so readily – it wouldn’t have been possible without them. They were gracious and informative, sharing the history and beauty of some of Gilmanton’s old homes. Through the generosity of both townspeople, and people from afar, the Gilmanton Year Round Library raised more than $5,000. A good time was had by all, with numerous requests for a repeat performance in the near future.
