Young preservationists-in-training in Nashua, NH

Here's a fun idea: a Student Historic Preservation Team! This is a group of students in Nashua, New Hampshire, who became interested in a historic building that was in dire need of rehabilitation and pitched in to help make it happen. I wish the article gave a little more information about what role the students played in the actual rehabilitation project; a comment on the article posted by a city staffer who had direct involvement in the project's early days sheds some light on this. The students received an award from the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance yesterday. Wouldn't it be great to have such a club at one of our local schools?
