Rehab of Warren's Redstone rocket begins
The Redstone rocket was brought to town in 1971 by the late Henry “Ted” Asselin, who, while in the U.S. Army, was stationed at the Redstone Arsenal near Huntsville, Ala., and who, when his hitch was up, asked his commanders if they could spare one of the rockets like the one that carried the first American, Alan Shepard of Derry, into space.
A family-owned business, Cornerstone has many commercial, institutional and residential clients throughout New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts, and it also does some “miscellaneous, individual residential work,” Petty noted, “but no missile-related work until today.”
Mark Langdon, who is Cornerstone Painting’s administrative director, grew up in nearby Haverhill and as a boy would see the rocket whenever his family drove down Route 25 to go to Plymouth. A year ago, Langdon asked Andrew Dorsett, who was then Warren’s town administrator, whether there was any work that Cornerstone could do in the community and eventually Dorsett came back with the Redstone project.
