PIERCE’S HALL RECEIVES GRANT FOR A NEW ROOF

by Anne Kerrey

EAST PUTNEY–Pierce’s Hall, a favorite venue of contra dancers and bands for the last 35 years, has passed a milestone on its path toward a new roof in the New Year. The Vermont Division of Historic Preservation has awarded the Putney Historical Society the full $12,500 that it and the East Putney Community Club requested to save the historic East Putney community building, built in 1832 as a Methodist meeting house.  This state grant will provide half of the amount needed for a new standing seam metal roof for Pierce’s Hall.
