Building A Future for Peacham's Past
PHA has completed the plans for the construction of the new Archive and Research Facility to house PHA’s priceless collections. The new facility will provide secure, climate-controlled storage for the collections, desks for researchers, and adequate space for volunteer staff.
Groundbreaking for the new facility took place on June 14, 2014. PHA celebrated the success of its Capital Campaign, "Building a Future for Peacham's Past" at the groundbreaking ceremony. The campaign successfully reached its goal of raising $150,000 to build the new facility. Please check back with us when the building opens in the spring of 2015 for information about our hours of operation!
The building will be constructed on a 100’x95’ parcel of land leased from the Town of Peacham in back of the Historical House, PHA’s museum, located at 153 Church Street. Although this will be a newly constructed facility, the Yankee- barn-like design will reflect and respect the historical integrity of our 19th century village. The building will also include a separate display space for the Peacham Academy replica.
The American Association for State and Local History (AASHL) Leadership in History Awards Committee has selected A Vermont Hill Town in the Civil War: Peacham’s Story as a 2013 Award of Merit winner.
