As part of our weekly building history series, today we take a look at the Union Block in Pittsfield, New Hampshire:
“The Thorndike-Tuttle Block, which housed Pittsfield Savings Bank and post office was destroyed by fire in 1876 along with all of the town’s school records. The safe was saved and the bank opened the next day in John Berry’s store. The bank, along with H. A. Tuttle and B. F. Kaime, immediately erected a new building they named the Union Block. Another floor, known as the Odd Fellows Hall, was added in 1895.”

Also, we are constantly on the look-out for new building histories to add to our picture galleries. If you know of a town the features building historical markers, in the real-world or virtually, please let us know. You can leave a comment on this post or contact us via the contact page. Thanks!
