Several local businesses have purchased $300,000 in tax credits through the New Hampshire Community Development Finance Authority’s tax credit program to support the creation of Forest Society North at The Rocks Estate in Bethlehem. Additional businesses are being sought for 2023. The credits will be put toward creating a new headquarters at The Rocks, and a northern headquarters for the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests, after the fire in 2019 destroyed the estate’s previous operations center. The Forest Society was awarded $300,000 in tax credits through the CDFA to support the renovation of the 1884 Carriage Barn at The Rocks as a new program and event center at The Rocks. The renovation will retain the historic exterior of the building and convert the interior into a net-zero energy-efficient structure featuring geothermal and solar photovoltaic systems.
