WSPA 40th Anniversary Celebration & Annual Meeting - 6pm
Researching Your Old House - 7pm
with Andrew Cushing
WSPA 40th and Researching Your Old House: About Us
Come join us to celebrate our 40 years of advocating for and supporting Weeks State Park. We will have a brief annual meeting followed by refreshments. The public is cordially invited. This will be followed by a fascinating look at how to uncover the history of your house.
Every house has a history, but how do you discover yours? Join the NH Preservation Alliance’s Andrew Cushing as he explores tools, tricks, and tips for researching your old house. Using a combination of sources tailored to each community – common and uncommon – anyone can start to assemble a more complete picture of their house’s history.
Cushing travels the state connecting communities to the resources they need to restore and reuse historic landmarks. He provides technical assistance, practical advice on preservation strategy, and fundraising guidance.
He is a New Hampshire native who returned to his hometown of Grafton, where he is restoring two houses.
He also founded and serves as president of Mascoma Valley Preservation, a regional nonprofit dedicated to adapting historic buildings.
Prior to returning to the Alliance in 2022, he headed up the Bureau of Historic Sites for NH State Parks. In this capacity he served as a talented and dedicated manager of our own historic park where his work was deeply appreciated.
Andrew is a graduate of Bowdoin College and the University of Pennsylvania, where he received an M.S. in Historic Preservation.
