Raymond Historical Campaign

The Raymond Historical Society is continuing the drive for funding to refurbish the exterior to the historic train depot in time for the town’s 250th celebration in 2014, in hopes it will continue to be one of Raymond’s treasured historic buildings for future generations. The Raymond Historical Society was founded in 1970 by a handful of members who wished to promote and document historical research in the Town of Raymond. Just three years later, the society purchased the old Boston & Maine depot, believing it was necessary to have a “base of operation” in order to preserve and maintain artifacts which may come to the Society. The site now includes the old Gile School House, ancillary museum buildings, and railroad cars situated on tracks of the former Boston & Maine Railroad. Fundraising committee members include, from left, Marge Desjardins, Diane White, president, and Sally Paradis. Missing from photo are Sue Ege and Joyce M.D. Wood. Checks may be mailed to: PO Box 94, Raymond, NH 03077, or call Diana at 603-895-9777. Your donation is fully tax-deductible and will be acknowledged.
