A great opportunity!

The Abbot-Downing Historical Society has an immediate opportunity to obtain, from a local collection, seven wagons made by Abbot-Downing.  We have six weeks to raise $200,000 or the vehicles will leave New Hampshire.  Six weeks!!  In four days, $13,000 has primed the well. Six weeks and $187,000 to go to save the seven pieces of our Concord history that made a global difference.  Six weeks before it is lost forever!.
