Restoring historic records


The town clerk plans to ask for more money from Town Meeting to pay for restoring historic town records and copying them for use on computers. Carol St. Pierre said she has about $50,000 for the project, but needs about twice that amount and hopes the town will approve using more Community Preservation Act funds. The documents date back to the 1700s and include assessors’ records, tax lists, selectmen minutes, and real estate valuations, she said. “If we don’t do it, they will fall apart,” she said.
