Official New Hampshire website
Department of Cultural Resources


As of July 1, 2017 and the adoption of the New Hampshire’s state budget for Fiscal Year 2018-2019, the Department of Cultural Resources' four divisions - listed in the navigation bar at the left - have combined with the Division of Parks & Recreation and Division of Forest & Lands (both formerly divisions of the Department of Resources and Economic Development) to form the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources.

OUR MISSION is to protect, preserve, promote and manage the State’s natural, recreational and cultural resources to support New Hampshire’s high quality of life and strengthen the experiences of our residents and guests.

We are currently developing a new website for the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources. Until it is complete, please continue to check here for information, including press releases. Thank you!
