1941 BuildingThe fate of New London’s 1941 Building is still in limbo after a failed 4-4 vote to demolish it. The Kearsarge School District’s, 1941 Building Ad Hoc Committee recommended demolition in a report presented at the school board meeting last night.

One of the issues with selling the building outright to the town is having a non-school entity on campus.

However if the town were to lease the 1941 Building, the school district would retain control over the building that is attached to the current SAU offices and middle school.

The Town would like to keep the historic building and use it for a Wellness Center. New London Select Board Chair Bill Helm said the board hopes to work something out with the school district.

The Selectboard will not be on the agenda for the next school board meeting on Aug 4.
