Donations to the Rockingham Meeting House Capital Reserve Fund mae through June 30, 2020 (which is the end of the town’s fiscal year), will be matched dollar for dollar by the Rockingham Meeting House Association. The association’s board of directors voted to donate $7,500 from past fundraising efforts to help the town continue to preserve and restore the Rockingham Meeting House, a National Historic Landmark built between 1787 and 1801.

During 2020, the town will begin addressing the meeting house’s most pressing need – the restoration of its plaster, nearly all of which is original. After more than 230 years, the plaster is showing signs of deterioration, with large cracks and missing chunks on the ceiling and walls.

Tax-deductible donations should be made to the Rockingham Meeting House Capital Reserve Fund. Supporters can drop off their donations in person at town hall in Bellows Falls, or mail them to the Town of Rockingham, PO Box 370, Bellows Falls VT 05101.

The capital reserve fund is a restricted account that can be used only for the meeting house, and is not part of the town’s general fund.

For more information, contact Association President John Leppman at jleppman@sover.net or 802-463-3858, or Rockingham Historic Preservation Commission Coordinator Susan Reing at clg@rockbf.org or 802-463-3456, ext. 1112.
