BATH, N.H. (AP) - A 140-year-old church that Executive Councilor Ray Burton attended and lobbied to put on the New Hampshire State Register of Historic Places has joined the list.
Burton, who died on Nov. 12 after suffering from kidney cancer, was a resident of Bath and a lifetime member of the Bath Congregational Church. Before his death, he worked with the state Division of Historical Resources to nominate it to the state register.
The church was built in 1873 in the Gothic Revival style and has been well preserved. The church has long been a presence in the social life of the community.
