Public chooses more than 100 historic places for 'My NH' map; entries still being accepted

The N.H. Division of Historical Resources’ “My New Hampshire” website, a map of favorite historic places selected by Granite Staters, has topped more than 100 entries.

“My New Hampshire” includes images of historic homes, town halls, schools, bridges, landscapes, trails, archaeological sites and more. Public libraries are a particularly popular type of entry. Information for photos includes their locations, descriptions and why the places are important to those who submitted them.

“In New Hampshire, we’re fortunate to be surrounded by so much history,” said Elizabeth Muzzey, director of the NHDHR and state historic preservation officer. “There are entries on ‘My New Hampshire’ for every county, and they include sites that you’d expect, as well as ones that are more unusual but still very meaningful to people.”

For more information about “My New Hampshire,” visit nh.gov/nhdhr and click on “Submit Photo” or “View Map” in the Quick Links box on the right. Photos received by September 8, 2015, may be used to illustrate the next edition of New Hampshire’s Five-Year Preservation Plan, 2016-2020.

New Hampshire's Division of Historical Resources, the “State Historic Preservation Office,” was established in 1974. The historical, archeological, architectural, engineering and cultural resources of New Hampshire are among the most important environmental assets of the state. Historic preservation promotes the use, understanding and conservation of such resources for the education, inspiration, pleasure and enrichment of New Hampshire’s citizens.
