Historic District Marker Unveiled

 

A new bronze marker for the Central Village Historic District was unveiled on Saturday, December 9, 2017 by members of the Historical Society.  The marker was obtained from a grant from Historic New England, a donation from the  New Ipswich Historical Society, as well as, an anonymous donor.  We would like to thank those who funded this project, as well as, the New Ipswich Selectman for approving the location of the marker on the town owned property at the corner of Turnpike Road and Main Street.  Also, a special thank you to the New Ipswich DPW for installing the marker.
