Rescuing a New London Landmark

Historic architecture preservation

If you’ve driven down Main Street in New London recently, you’ve probably noticed the “1941” building, formerly the Kearsarge Middle School has been demolished, however, a committee of citizens was able to arrange for the building’s iconic steeple to be removed by crane and preserved.   As community service and involvement is a staple principle of our business, Bonin Architects have volunteered our time to design a monument to display the steeple.  The monument, located on Main St. at the intersection with Cougar Court, will feature bricks salvaged from the old school walls and the building’s “1941” cornerstone.

 

This project will rely on the support of the community and is a great way to preserve the character of our town.  Fundraising is underway, and many local businesses and citizens have already committed to aiding in the construction of the project.  If you would like to donate, please contact Kim Bonin to make arrangements.
