A Special Place to Visit in Tilton

        The town of Tilton has many special places natural, historic, architectural, and retail.

          This Tilton Conservation Newsletter offers a glimpse into one of those special places

                                                The Savina Hartwell Memorial Bandstand 
                      at the Tilton Island Park on Main Street by the Winnipesaukee River

        It's here where you can attend free summer concerts on Sunday nights during the months of
          July and August. Friends, neighbors, and tourists can hear varied musical styles from jazz
          to bluegrass to big band to the Beatles. Concerts start at 6:30 p.m. and continue until 9.
          Bring a chair or blanket and enjoy wonderful concerts in the summer evening. For more
          information, go to

          The concerts are produced and presented by Alan Hartwell, in memory of his wife Savina
           who was a popular jazz performer in supper clubs and hotels.

          To get to the gazebo, you will cross the historic Truesdell Truss bridge which is listed on
           the National Register of Historic Places in NH. Built in 1881, the cast iron bridge
           was manufactured by A. D. Briggs & Company of Springfield, Massachusetts.
