Heavy rain has collapsed part of an abandoned four-story building on Main Street in Bethlehem, forcing emergency crews to close Route 302.
No one has been injured. WMUR-TV reports a demolition crew is scheduled to arrive this morning to take down the rest of the building, which is over 100 years old. The building is 150 feet long by 50 feet wide.
The building started bowing Thursday afternoon after a strong storm and part of the roof eventually collapsed.
In 2006, Plymouth resident and PSU Music Professor Jonathan Santore was named New Hampshire Composer of the year. Just last month, he was awarded The American Prize in Choral Composition for 2013. As he tells NHPR's Sean Hurley, he's come a long way since playing trumpet for his high school marching band in Tennessee.
French composer Erik Satie once remarked, "Before I write a piece, I walk around it several times, accompanied by myself," It's a creative prelude that Plymouth composer Jonathan Santore finds absolutely necessary.
A public "scoping" hearing on Northern Pass is being moved from West Stewartstown to Colebrook after the state’s Congressional delegation and Coos County Commissioner Rick Samson raised concerns.
The site is being changed “in response to public requests that raised concerns about insufficient capacity” at a restaurant in West Stewartstown, according to a statement from the U.S. Department of Energy.
The meeting will now be held at the Colebrook Elementary School, 27 Dumont Street from 5 to 8 pm on September 26.
Ringing with cannon fire and musket shots, the fields at the base of Mount Washington became a colonial encampment for dozens of reenactors at this weekend's "Muster in the Mountains". As NHPR's Sean Hurley reports, French and Indian War militia men camped beside Revolutionary War "sutlers" and all of them hung out with the trappers and mountain men in this time traveling rendez-vous for 18th and 19th century roleplayers.
John Maxon, in French and Indian war era period garb describes the anachronistic scene playing out in the field behind him.
The U.S. Department of Transportation has approved one so-called Tiger grant in New Hampshire, providing $1.4 million to improve 42 miles of rail line between Rochester and Ossipee. But a request for funds for Coos Country failed.
The grants were sought under the federal government’s Transportation Investment Generating Economy Recovery program nicknamed "Tiger."
New Hampshire’s congressional delegation joined the state department of transportation in seeking several grants for the state.
