Dunbarton Town Hall restoration project moves into second phase
“As I got older I got better at it,” said Zeller, 76.
Zeller remembers the school pageants and concerts held on the second-floor stage, and the shows put on by the adults.
“I would bring my sixth-grade students up there and allow them to ride down (the staircase). I would, too,” he said. “I’m so anxious to have (the second floor) restored and use the stage again. Not just for nostalgic reasons but it’s the only stage in town.”
While the refurbished first floor has been home to the Dunbarton Library since 1995, the windows are the only upgrade to the second floor since 1909.
The idea is to build a two-story, 34-foot by 17-foot addition on the back of Town Hall for an elevator and a main staircase; build a second floor rest room; new sprinkler system, electrical, plumbing, heating, cooling and lighting; and possibly a kitchenette for refreshments. When the work is complete, a new library entrance through Town Hall’s front door will be built.
The Dunbarton Arts on the Common takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, May 10, and Sunday, May 11. Proceeds from the event will go toward the Town Hall and Theatre Restoration Project. About 100 artisans are expected to attend. There will also be a beer-tasting tent and live entertainment.
