Discuss NH’s Historical Preservation Plan in Randolph, Aug. 9

The N.H. Division of Historical Resources is hosting a discussion of “My New Hampshire: New Hampshire’s Five-Year Preservation Plan, 2016-2020” at the Randolph Town Offices on Aug. 9, 2016, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Anyone interested in learning more about historic preservation in the state is welcome to attend.

Randolph was one of three communities selected for public listening sessions when information was being gathered for “My New Hampshire,” which details the current status of historic preservation in the state, summarizes important preservation trends and challenges from the last five years, and describes strategies for protecting and promoting New Hampshire’s special historic places moving forward.

In addition to listening sessions, information collected via an online questionnaire and a wide variety of success stories provided by community leaders, advocates and historic preservation organizations were incorporated into the plan.

A majority of the images in the plan were selected from “My New Hampshire,” the NHDHR’s online photosharing campaign of historic places throughout the state. The site continues to be popular, with photos and descriptions of more than 130 sites placed on its map by the public.

Both “My New Hampshire: New Hampshire’s Five-Year Preservation Plan, 2016-2020” and the “My New Hampshire” photosharing website can be accessed at nh.gov/nhdhr.

New Hampshire’s Division of Historical Resources, the “State Historic Preservation Office,” was established in 1974. The historical, archaeological, architectural and cultural resources of New Hampshire are among its most important environmental assets. 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 nh.gov/nhdhr or call 603-271-3483.
