Nashua's former Hunt Memorial Library was constructed in 1903 and designed by architect Ralph Adams Cram. Similar to many of Cram's public buildings, the library featured the Gothic Revival style and serves as an excellent version of his early work prior to his international acclaim for other buildings. Like many public libraries, Nashua constructed a modern building for its central library in 1970. The building served as the headquarters of the Nashua's public schools until 1991. Plans were developed in 2004 to renovate the old building and this work was completed in 2011.
