Preservation of Acworth Vital Records
In 2007, I applied for and received a grant for $10,000.00 from the NH Dept. of State and Vital Records Improvement Fund. The following year, a NH Moose Plate grant for $5,490.00 was awarded to the Acworth Town Clerk office. With these two grants, all of Acworth’s vital record books under the care of this office were restored and are preserved for generations to come. This money also paid for a fireproof vault to store the books, a fire extinguisher, archival folders, document cases and vacuum cleaner. Below are some before and after pictures of the books.
