What’s so Special about Concord’s Gasholder Building? Should it be Saved?

Two public sessions on the significance and future of the iconic gasholder building in the state capital. Visible from I93 and a landmark of 19th century industrial New Hampshire, the building is the last-of-its-kind in the country and threatened with demolition.

Ever wonder what the round brick building on South Main Street was built for? How it was used? Join Roger Reed, historian at the National Register of Historic Places, Benjamin Wilson, state historic preservation officer, preservation consultant Elizabeth Durfee Hengen, and architectural historian James Garvin for this free presentation with Q&A.

By the end of the year, Liberty Utilities, the building’s owner, plans to secure a demolition permit for the 1888 structure, and the Preservation Alliance is working with the utility and the City of Concord to find a redevelopment solution which benefits the city, region and nation.

In November 5, there will be a second session on redevelopment options for the gasholder building.
