Northway Bank recently awarded the Berlin & Coos County Historical Society a $250 grant toward the restoration of three rare prints. Two of the prints are an artist’s rendition of a bird’s eye view of Berlin Falls in 1888. One of the prints was donated by Inez and Oscar Hamlin and the other by the the Otis Bartlett estate. The third print is an 1892 drawing of the Burgess Sulphite Mill donated by Alan Colburn. The prints were de-acidified, cleaned and repaired.
One of the 1888 prints is on display in the Northway Bank lobby in Berlin.
We want to thank Northway Bank and a generous member of the Moffett House Museum Mr Raymond Daigle for making the restoration of these prints possible and displaying one of them for the people of Berlin to enjoy.
