Watering Trough Historic Marker – Pembroke, New Hampshire

In the early 1880s the town of Pembroke passed an ordinance mandating sources of water be available for man and beasts. This 1884 trough currently being used as an oversized flower pot dates from that period. It is thought that the water supplying the trough came from the nearby Meetinghouse Brook just a short distance south of the site. There is a historic marker adjacent to the trough with a marker describing Pembroke’s linear street planning on the opposite side.
