Saving a Piece of History

August 1st, 2011 by Lindsay

In 2005, James Wagner revived efforts to preserve the Brown Company Research and Development Building.  Under his direction, in partnership with the board of directors of the Northern Forest Heritage Park (NFHP) and Tri-County Community Action Program (TCCAP), Brownfield grants were obtained to begin environment cleanup of the building.  In 2010, the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance placed the Brown Company Research and Development Building on its Seven to Save list.
