Bellingham is cobbling together funds from several sources to restore and renovate the former town hall, said Town Administrator Denis Fraine.
At a recent selectmen’s meeting, Fraine said the town hoped for a $50,000 grant from the state, to go with $181,000 in proceeds from the sale of the former North School and $34,000 approved at last year’s Town Meeting to repair the 200-year-old wooden building.
Town Meeting approval is necessary before any money is spent, Fraine said.
When the building is complete, the town’s Planning Office and Historical Society will be housed there.
