Bellows Falls Historical Society One Step Closer to Heritage Center

The Bellows Falls Historical Society is now one step closer to beginning work on a heritage center within the TLR Mill Complex.

The Rockingham Select Board voted unanimously Tuesday night to approve the historical society’s two-year lease, leaving just one more step before keys can be handed over to the property. The historical society will now have to sign a $2-million insurance policy, which is expected to happen in the coming days according to the Eagle Times.

BFHS plans to fully restore and revitalize the complex, and make it welcoming to member of the community and beyond. The group says the community will play a key role in deciding how to best use the renovated building. The property was seized by Rockingham in the 1990s due to backed taxes.

More information on the project can be found on the Bellows Falls Historical Society Facebook page.
