The most interesting building in Concord – the whole state, if you’re a history-of-energy wonk – is the gasholder near Exit 13 of I-89, which held and distributed gas made from coal before natural gas arrived in 1952.
I have written about it many times, including reminiscences from the last president of Concord Gas as well as several stories saying that the building is in trouble … but this time it’s really in trouble! The owner says it will apply for a demolition permit by the end of the year if money isn’t raised to save it.
You can read the story here.
I’d suggest that the gas house be taken down and the bricks used to construct a small replica of the building on-site with an explanatory plaque telling of its history. The land itself could become a small “ pocket park” with benches and access from either side of the park.
