The Stoddard Congregational Church, originally built in 1836, is having its original stone foundation replaced with a new concrete one. The building will also receive structural repairs to its timber-frame flooring, and an 8-foot basement will be dug beneath it. For all that, the 125-ton, 150-square-foot church needed to be lifted 40 inches from the ground. It also houses an organ that cannot be removed, adding a lot of weight. The work is being done by Granite State Building Movers from Atkinson, NH. This restoration project is made possible by a $200,000 matching grant from the Land and Community Heritage Investment Program that was awarded in 2022. Prior, the church had been fundraising for more than a year. Stoddard, New Hampshire, USA.
