Historic New England celebrates $70,000 LCHIP grant award
PORTSMOUTH, NEW HAMPSHIRE – Historic New England received a $70,000 matching grant from the New Hampshire Land and Community Heritage Investment Program (LCHIP) to support exterior repairs at Rundlet-May House in Portsmouth.

The project will help Historic New England’s ongoing efforts to preserve, interpret, and increase visitation to Rundlet-May House, one of the most important Federal house museums in the country. The scope of work includes: restoration of the gutter and downspout system; repairs along the mansion’s roof line and balustrade; replacement of outbuilding roofs, including the carriage barn; repairs to three helical rose arbors; and replacement of the missing urns on the front fence.

LCHIP-funded projects in 2017
Rundlet-May House is one of forty-two natural, cultural, and historic resources to receive awards at the announcement event, which included remarks by Governor Chris Sununu. The awards total $3,600,000 and support projects across the state, from Littleton to Nashua and Westmoreland to Star Island.

This year’s grant recipients include twenty-nine historic resource projects for buildings representing nearly two centuries of New Hampshire history, from 1769 to 1967. Historic buildings include two rare remaining railroad buildings and the first monument in the country dedicated to women’s service in both military and civilian roles.

The thirteen natural resource projects selected for grants will ensure permanent protection of 2,100 acres. Seven farms will be protected and available for current and future food production. Other parcels increase the protected acreage on the sides of popular Mount Kearsarge and Crotched Mountain.
