The Woman’s Club of Penacook and other members of the community constructed this historical quilt in celebration of the country’s Bicentennial – 1776-1976. The club was organized in 1876, so it also celebrated one hundred years of the club. A silver tea in October 1976 was held to display this quilt and a number of antique quilts.
Most of the information provided about each square was compiled in 1976, and needs to be updated! If you are familiar with the histories of any of the buildings included, we invite you to share your knowledge by sending an e-mail to penacookhistory at hotmail.com.
