Concord prepares to seek historic status for 1888 gasholder

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — Concord officials are preparing to apply to get an industrial building designated as a nationally recognized historic landmark.

The Concord Monitor reports that city councilors on Monday accepted the recommendation of the Concord Heritage Commission to use grant money to hire a consultant to prepare the application that could put the gasholder building on the National Register of Historic Places.

The city had sought a grant to pay for the application in April. It learned in May that it had won a $9,600 Certified Local Government grant from the New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources. The grant does not require a local match.

The 1888 Concord gasholder is believed to be the last of its kind in the country with its interior works intact.
