"History Stitched by Women: Penacook's Bicentennial Quilt" by Lianne Keary
In 1976, 27 members of the Penacook Woman's Club created a quilt to celebrate the Bicentennial. The beautifully crafted squares highlight Penacook's rich history, including the Pioneer Engine House, Morrill Farm, Penacook Police Station, Washington House, and activities like snow rolling and sliding on Depot Hill. The quilt is now on display at the Penacook Historical Society, and will be featured in a presentation by Lianne Keary. Come share your stories about this prized quilt and the women who stitched our history into it.
