N.H. adds 3 buildings to Register of Historic Places
The New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources has added three buildings to the state’s Register of Historic Places.
The register helps promote significant properties. A listing allows relief from some building codes and regulations, and qualifies properties for certain grant programs.
The three added Thursday are:
∎ Town House in Campton. Built about 1855, the building has also served as a library and municipal court. It’s currently the home of the Campton Historical Society.
∎ Town Hall, New Castle. This was built in 1894 by the Wentworth Lodge of the Knights of Pythias and served as the group’s headquarters until the 1920s. In 1927, it was purchased by New Castle.
∎ Peterborough Historical Society. The museum was funded and designed by Benjamin Russell and built from 1916-1920. It serves as a historical and cultural organization.
