CONCORD, NH- The New Hampshire Historical Council recently announced the addition of six new properties to State's Register of Historic Places, and two happen to be located in Cheshire County.
Keene's Horatio Colony House Museum which was constructed in phases, started in 1806 and was completed in the 1930's, to this day the building remains a significant piece of history as it's known not only for its original construction during the Federal period but also showcases the evolution of architecture throughout the Victorian era.
While in Nelson along the common sits the other local addition, the town's 1846 Greek Revival Town Hall. The building which was the third of its kind is seen as a shining example of frugality as it features much of the same framing used in the previous town hall. The hall also serves as a prime example of how functional and adaptable structures commonly used in rural small towns can be.
Other notable properties named were in the towns of Chichester, Freedom, Grafton and Moultonborough.
