In Strafford (pop. 1075) community members have been caring for their Town House for over 200 years. It is the symbol of their community and the foundation of democracy in Strafford. Each year Town Meeting is held at the Town House, as well as a summer lecture series and other community events throughout the year. The Village Revitalization Initiative grant, coupled with other fundraising, made it possible to rehabilitate the deteriorating bell tower.
Village Revitalization Initiative Grant: $ 50,000.00
