Since 1901 Chichester has followed the Old Home Week tradition and
continues to celebrate an annual Old Home Day event in August.
For more than one hundred years there has always been one staple:
real bean-hole baked beans. Since 1903 the Mardens have worked hard
preparing their specialty “Bean-Hole” Baked Beans for Chichester Old
Home Days and various events in the Suncook Valley Region.
This year the 5th generation Marden family shared this unique
tradition for the 111th year. On August 16 the Suncook Valley
Region enjoyed this renowned “Bean-Hole” Baked Beans event from
beginning to end - on Friday afternoon with the parboiling of the
beans to the unveiling and serving at Saturday’s lunch.
A very big thank you to the Marden Family!
