Chain Link Fence Innovation Historical Marker – Raymond, New Hampshire

There is a brand new New Hampshire state historical marker in Raymond located in the strip mall across the street from the Tuckaway Tavern. In 1930 Frank Mafera patented a method of forming wire fence that was appealing for residential use as it was both safer and more attractive. Prior to this innovation, chain link fencing was woven in a way that left ‘ragged or unsightly’ twists or barbs.
