Deerfield Heritage Commission offers glimpse into town's storied history
DEERFIELD — For the fourth time this year, Deerfield officials are partnering with the New Hampshire Humanities Council to host a program aimed at educating locals to the rich arts and history within the Granite State.
In this case, the Deerfield Heritage Commission is hosting retired Dartmouth College professor Jere Daniell, who has made 176 previous presentations around the state. He’ll be discussing his favorite topic, Colonial New Hampshire, said Heritage Commission Chairman Carolyn Hoague. The event is scheduled for 2 p.m. at Deerfield’s Town Hall at 6 Church St.
“My understanding is he’s planning to highlight Deerfield, specifically,” said Hoague. “Apparently the town has an interesting past and he’s going to share some of that with us.”
The hour-long program, one of hundreds presented by the New Hampshire Humanities Council throughout the state each year, is free to the public and includes complimentary refreshments.
“Our goal as a Heritage Commission is obviously to foster people’s interest in history, and this program has particular historical value,” said Hoague. “It’s a nice community event.”
