As of July 1, 2017 and the adoption of the New Hampshire’s state budget for Fiscal Year 2018-2019, the Department of Cultural Resources' four divisions have combined with the Division of Parks & Recreation and Division of Forest & Lands (both formerly divisions of the Department of Resources and Economic Development) to form the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.

The mission of the Division of Historical Resources is to preserve and celebrate New Hampshire’s irreplaceable historic resources through programs and services that provide education, stewardship, and protection


Agency Overview

New Hampshire's "State Historic Preservation Office" was established in 1974 as the Division of Historical Resources. The legislature of New Hampshire has determined that the historical, archeological, architectural, engineering, and cultural heritage of New Hampshire is among the most important environmental assets of the state and that the rapid social and economic development of contemporary society threatens the remaining vestiges of this heritage; therefore, it is hereby declared to be public policy and in the public interest of this state to engage in a comprehensive program of historic preservation to promote the use and conservation of such property for the education, inspiration, pleasure, and enrichment of the citizens of New Hampshire. (RSA 227-C)



We help citizens and communities tell New Hampshire's stories.
We have 14,000 years of history to share!
