Antrim

Historic business talk on Sunday

Please join us Sunday at 3 p.m. at the Presbyterian Church for a discussion of Pratt and Caughey, one of Antrim’s most significant businesses.

In describing Pratt and Caughey, Parades and Promenades states:

The stone wall bounding the northern section of the Maplewood Cemetery was built by Caughey & Pratt, contractors. This firm, headed by G.H. Caughey and H. B. Pratt, was responsible for some fine construction in Antrim and surrounding towns for the better parts of two decades. The quality of craftsmanship can still be observed in such places in Bennington village, the stone walls at the Verney farm in Bennington, Nubanusit Park in Peterborough, and the North Branch cemetery, as well as dams and buildings.

We are fortunate to have as our speaker, Ben Pratt - New Hampshire’s 2014 Engineer of the Year, Town Treasurer, Grapevine Board Member, and participant in a myriad of other public interest organizations. Ben is the son of one of the founders of the enterprise.

If you have any questions, please contact Steve Ullman at 588-2005 or sullman@brockport.edu.
