Candia Heritage Commission- Rockingham County News Volumes
The Candia Heritage Commission is pleased to announce the acquisition of a valuable historical resource, bound volumes of the Rockingham County News encompassing the years 1978-1998. These were our local editions of the Goffstown News and Neighborhood Publications. The newspaper begins with the “Candia Current”, weekly news from our town. Within the pages of the newspaper is a wide variety of news from Candia and our surrounding towns. A survey of a volume gives a delightful illustrated picture of life in Candia during that year. A sample copy can be viewed at the Smyth Public Library.
The Candia Historical Society is storing this valuable resource at Schoolhouse #1 near the Candia 4-Corners. A two week loan of a volume can be arranged by contacting Sis Richter 483-2585, president of the Historical Society or Diane Philbrick 483-8239, chair of the Heritage Commission. Most volumes contain Jan-June or July-Dec of a given year.
