Preservation group names ‘Seven to Save’
The New Hampshire Preservation Alliance has announced its first “Seven to Save” list of the Granite State’s most endangered historic properties.
The 2006 Seven to Save are:
• Great Stone Dwelling (1837), Enfield
• Stone Arched Bridge (1847), Keene
• Epsom Historic Meetinghouse (1861), Epsom
• Philbrook Farm Inn and Croftie Farm (1861), Shelburne
• New Hampshire’s State Historic Sites, which include The Robert Frost Farm (1900), Derry; Fort Stark (1746), Newmarket; White Island Lighthouse (1853), and 18 others
• Franco-American Centre (1910), Manchester
• Hilltop Elementary School (1927), Somersworth
The Seven to Save program brings in focus significant properties that are in great need of preservation as well as the broader preservation challenges that face New Hampshire.
“We hope that the listing of these places will not only show the need to save them for future generations, but highlight their historical, architectural and economic value to New Hampshire,” said Jennifer Goodman, executive director of the preservation alliance.
The program is sponsored, in part, by Littleton Millwork and TMS Architects of Portsmouth.
The New Hampshire Preservation Alliance is the statewide membership organization dedicated to preserving historic buildings, communities and landscapes through education and advocacy.
