A Civil War-era building in Claremont is up for auction.
The 11,000-square-foot Oscar Brown Block was bought from Maine Street Claremont in 2007 by the Monadnock Economic Development Corporation. Renovations were done to the building, and today it houses a restaurant and a barbershop.
Financial troubles including a default on a loan led to the building being put up for sale in December.
The New Hampshire Senate has approved a constitutional amendment to give the state more leeway in how it distributes school aid.
The amendment would make it easier for lawmakers to target money to poorer communities but not explicitly undue the Claremont rulings that require the state to fund an adequate education for every child. After the vote Governor Lynch described the proposal as “a significant milestone.”
