Town of Haverhill, New Hampshire


Ladd Street School

The Ladd Street School, built in 1849 for School District No. 2, was one of many Haverhill School Districts located in various sections of the town during the nineteenth century. Its construction coincided with the demolition of the 1790 meetinghouse of the First Congregational Church which stood nearby. When the parish purchased the brick meetinghouse on the common in 1829, the church at Ladd Street was gradually abandoned. During the past two decades the Society has made extensive repairs to the foundation, windows, roof and belfry. With major exterior repairs completed, attention has turned to refurbishing the interior in the hope that the building--long an important community symbol--can now also be used for Society and community functions. Recent electrical work, painting and repairs to plaster and the schoolroom's tin ceiling, were made possible in large part through The Mildred Page Fund for Public Buildings at Haverhill Corner, administered by the Haverhill Select Board. We are grateful to the Board--and especially to Mildred Page--for their vision and generosity in helping to restore this precious link with Haverhill's earliest years to much of its former glory.
