“The Little House with a Big Story to Tell” Ms. Gilbert will do a PowerPoint presentation showcasing a restoration project of the Elihu Akin House from the foundation up, a project that is listed on the State Register of Historic Places and deemed eligible for listing on the National Register. The Elihu Akin House, one of the oldest houses in Dartmouth, was built in 1762 by housewright Job Mosher and purchased by Elihu Akin in 1769; the Akin House is older than America.
