Department of Cultural Resources
Welcome to the N.H. 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, through the work of five divisions:

NH State Parks logo NH Division of Forests and Lands logo NH State Library logo
NH Division of Historical Resources logo NH State Council on the Arts

NOTE: On July 1, 2018, the N.H. Film & Television Office was transferred to the Department of Business and Economic Affairs' Division of Travel & Tourism Development.

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. If you would like information about one of our divisions, click on the icons above and you will be directed to those websites.

Thank you!
