CORNISH, N.H. (AP) - The 211-year-old meetinghouse in Cornish, New Hampshire, is getting a $54,000 grant to help with its restoration.

The Eagle Times reports (https://bit.ly/1D9G1F6) the work includes repairs to rotting and decaying clapboards, trim, windows and shutters, and the slate roof.

The Cornish Meetinghouse was built in 1803 as a Baptist church. It was dismantled and moved in 1818. The most extensive reconstruction happened in 1845.

The trustees of the meetinghouse received the Land and Community Heritage Investment Program grant last week.
