About Us

As of September 2011, we are officially a 501(c)3 non-profit organization!

The BRHPS was formed in March 2008. Its purpose is to save and facilitate restoration of the former Portland & Ogdensburg
/Maine Central roundhouse located on the famed Mountain Division. In August 2008, the BRHPS successfully got the roundhouse listed on the State of New Hampshire State Registry of Historic Places and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2014. The group is always cleaning up debris and trash around the structure so that it may be made accessible for contractor estimates and further volunteer labor.

We are an all-volunteer non-profit organization, and we need folks like you to help us reach our goal! Your donation of time, services, materials, and artifacts is greatly appreciated. Membership helps us grow stronger, and is only $10.00 a year.

Please feel free to browse around our site and check back often as we make updates and add historic material. Due to our insurance liability considerations, we ask that you not attempt to visit or enter the roundhouse site by yourself. Please contact us if you have any questions about our project or our organization!
