variety of other historic civic buildings - including a town library, hose house, cemetery, common and memorials - were added to serve Salem’s ever- changing local government needs. The Pelham Library and Memorial Building was constructed in 1896 and includes a memorial room to honor Pelham men who fought in the Civil War. Its notable colonial revival design is by architect Frederick W. Stickney of the firm Stickney & Austin in Lowell, MA. Originally built as a library and meeting space for the town officers, it is now home to the Pelham Historical Society. The Salem Common Historic District and the Pelham Library and Memorial Building join a growing list of significant New Hampshire buildings, districts, sites, structures and objects that are important in defining the state’s history and character, and that have been designated to the National Register for Historic Places.

Peri Neville would like to thank all who attended the first event and would like to see it grow into a regular community event. There are already plans for the next event - the most unique shaped and ugly vegetable contest. The winners will be announced in the local newspapers. This is a great time to bring items to exchange, and learn about other items and watch as bartering goes on with vegetables and recipes. For more information visit www.the-xchg.com
