Woody Hill School Sheila reports that all the interior work is finished, and the original furnishings have been put back in the building. The windows have also been redone, but will not be re-installed until the doors are refinished and replaced. She also reported that shutters were made for the windows as well! We are all looking forward to seeing the completed work once the nicer weather arrives. We're hoping to have a Woody Hill School restoration ceremony on the same weekend as our annual Exeter One Room Schoolhouse Reunion, sometime in June.

Town Hall Project Wouldn't it be great to turn the never-used old Town Hall back into a hub of activity again? The building was the center of town activity in the 1800's, and was used as a schoolhouse until 1952, but now is all but forgotten. EHA members are currently working on securing a grant to move the old Town Hall building, currently located at the intersection of Ten Rod Rd and Town Hall Rd., onto a new foundation near the Exeter Public Library. Not only would we save and restore a historic building, but we could also use it as a public meeting place, as well as a museum to house and display Exeter's treasures. Stay tuned for updates!
