Old Home Day 2022

Planning is underway for Old Home Week / Day 2022 – after a two year hiatus. This is a great opportunity to maintain a tradition, and also add some new ideas so that the tradition remains vibrant and appealing.

This is spearheaded by Elaine Giacomo and Jen Pepin, with survey help from Emily Tucker. We hope that you’ll take just a couple of minutes for this survey, to help guide this project. Of course we’ll be providing results and sharing ongoing developments with you through Nelson In Common.

Nelson is thought to be the first among communities in this area to begin the Old Home Day custom. In 1899, Governor Frank W. Rollins, inspired by the Nelson gathering, urged the legislature to proclaim New Hampshire Old Home Week. Read about the history of Old Home Day in Nelson .  .  .
