Neighborhood Heritage Districts: A New Tool for New Hampshire Communities
Nadine Miller Peterson, Preservation Planner
- Neighborhood Heritage Districts (also known as Conservation Districts) are found throughout the country, but until recently New Hampshire lacked information to help municipalities establish them. The New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources was honored to receive a Johanna Favrot grant from the National Trust for Historic Preservation, matched in-kind by funds from the DHR and the National Park Service, to develop a legal framework and to prepare a citizen handbook for establishing and administering these districts. The DHR is pleased to announce the availability of Neighborhood Heritage Districts: A Handbook for New Hampshire Municipalities.
