New Hampshire Club Notes
NEWPORT — The Reprisal Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution will open the Little Red Schoolhouse, a school turned museum, to the public from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturdays in July and August.
Classes began there in 1835, with Josiah Stevens as the first teacher. The school operated until 1885, when the town of Newport adopted the school union system. In 1952, the DAR chapter obtained the schoolhouse and began restoring it as a museum. The chapter now maintains the former schoolhouse and hosts its visitors.
WOLFEBORO — The Winnipesaukee Chapter of DAR celebrated its 90 years as a chapter this month at the Wolfeboro Inn. Regent Nancy Ramos welcomed the members and visitors before the meal.
