One person’s trash is another’s treasure, as the saying goes, and it’s ringing true for state historians in New Hampshire.
The shut down of Fraser Paper’s pulp mill in New Hampshire has historians scrambling to stay ahead of demolition crews in trying to preserve records and artifacts from the facility that operated for more than 100 years before closing last May, the New Hampshire Union Leader has reported.
“We do have an opportunity now to make sure people don’t forget the pulp industry in northern New Hampshire,” the Union Leader reported director of the New Hampshire Historical Society William Veillette as saying. “In the future, there will be interest in how paper was made in the 20th century.”
The documents are currently being stored at the Northern Forest Heritage Park, and will later be evaluated and catalogued.
