Twin marble lions flank the grand entrance to Mercy Hall. This historic turn-of-the century mansion once owned by the first Catholic Governor of New Hampshire is a 22,000 square foot building, comprised of the original mansion and a large dormitory and classroom extension. In the Fall of 2018, the building was blessed with refurbished floors, wallpaper, and elegant pictures of Venice giving the Hall a courtly atmosphere.
Since acquiring the building, Thomas More College has been warmly welcomed by the City of Nashua and the local community. A group of local residents once wrote the College: “One is always apprehensive when a new neighbor moves in. ‘Who are these people? How will they act? Will they respect our Historic District?'” These fears, however, we soon alleviated “when we met Dr. Fahey, his family and staff, the Thomas More professors and their wonderful students. Our north end community is very happy that the Anderson House (now Mercy Hall) has been returned to academic use and will be responsibly cared for.”
Now the Thomas More Center for the Restoration of Christian Culture plans to host several lectures and social gatherings at the Hall.
We hope that you might check out events page and join us sometime.
The Center for the Restoration of Christian Culture is a project of The Thomas More College of Liberal Arts.
