Someone asked today about the history of the South Meeting House where we are holding our Sangha meetings on Sundays. Here is a very good write up available on Seacoast NH Online:

“The South Meeting House is significant as a well-documented example of the procedures involved in an ordinary municipal building project of the mid-nineteenth century. Whether or not by intent, a large part of the local building community was involved in its construction, producing a building which was simple, yet dignified and well-constructed. Its most elaborate feature, the Italianate cupola and clock tower, forms the dominant landmark of the historic South End of Portsmouth.”
