Meetinghouse Hill

Filed under: architecture,Landscapes,Monadnock Region — Tags: — Frank @ 8:00 PM

Meetinghouse Hill was the original center of Antrim. The original meetinghouse was built near the summit in 1785. The associated cemetery is still well maintained an offers nice views of Mount Mondanock after some recent logging activity on the southwestern flank.

The meetinghouse building was moved to the foot of the hill (maybe a half mile trip) in 1832 and was purchased by the Antrim Grange in 1894. It still used as the Grange Hall and they are in the midst of a campaign to restore the building. Across Meetinghouse Hill Road from the Grange is the Uplands, an old farmhouse and barn. The Uplands is the home of our friends Victor and Lynne who run a bed and breakfast there.

Last Friday, I spent some time on Meetinghouse Hill making photographs.

  1. Well done – especially in monochrome.

    I grew up on Meetinghouse Hill – but in Dorchester. My Meetinghouse hill precedes this NH one by about one hundred years. And, is the sight of the first elementary school on the U. S. More trivia, I student taught in that school – no, not back in the late 1600s.
