Input needed for state preservation plan

The N.H. Division of Historical Resources is seeking input from Granite Staters as it prepares the state’s 2016-2020 Preservation Plan.

The statewide historic preservation plan celebrates preservation success stories, highlights lessons learned and lays out a vision for preserving the state’s special historic places for the next five years. It is used as a reference tool by historical groups, planning commissions, museums, policy makers, developers, preservation professionals and others interested in New Hampshire’s historical buildings, landscapes and communities.

The public will have the opportunity to share their thoughts at in-person public listening sessions in April and May. They may also participate by taking a short online questionnaire.

The public listening sessions will take place April 28 at the Players’ Ring in Portsmouth, May 4 at the Peterborough Town Hall and May 11 at the Randolph Town Hall. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with light refreshments, with the sessions beginning at 6 p.m. An additional session will take place at the N.H. Office of Energy and Planning Conference on May 2.

The input the DHR receives will help set historic preservation goals, objectives and strategies for all of New Hampshire through 2020.

More information about New Hampshire’s Preservation Plan, including a link to the online questionnaire, is available by visiting and clicking on “NH’s Five-Year Preservation Plan” in the box on the right.

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.
