Share your photographs of favorite NH historical places

To help celebrate May as Preservation Month, the N.H. Division of Historical Resources is asking Granite Staters to share images of their favorite New Hampshire historical places online.

“My New Hampshire” will include images of historic buildings and structures, residential neighborhoods, downtowns, historic or rural landscapes and archaeological sites.

In addition to the images, photographers are asked to provide the photo’s location and a short description of why the place is special to them.

Anyone submitting a photo must acknowledge that they hold its copyright or that the photo is in the public domain. Photos received by September 8, 2015, may be used to illustrate the next edition of New Hampshire’s Five-Year Preservation Plan, 2016-2020.

In addition to photo submissions to “My New Hampshire,” the NHDHR is seeking public input for the 2016-2020 Preservation Plan. Individuals may offer their thoughts about historic preservation in New Hampshire by taking a short online questionnaire.

“So much preservation in New Hampshire happens at the local level,” said Elizabeth Muzzey, director of the NHDHR and state historic preservation officer. “The plan will celebrate those successes, as well as develop strategies to address local challenges and needs.”

More information about “My New Hampshire,” the 2016-2020 Preservation Plan and a link to the questionnaire is available by visiting nh.gov/nhdhr and clicking on “NH’s Five-Year Preservation Plan” in the Quick Links box on the right. The questionnaire closes at the end of Preservation Month, May 31, 2015; “My New Hampshire” is ongoing.

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. For more information, visit us online at www.nh.gov/nhdhr or by calling 603-271-3483.
