The New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources is celebrating "May is Preservation Month" by highlighting a unique New Hampshire historic property every day. Selections come from "New Hampshire’s Five Year Preservation Plan: Points of Interest and Touring Map," the 2011-2015 state historic preservation plan.We have so many beautiful historical areas in our state it's a shame not to be aware of them!
The NHDHR blog says that funding is being sought to pay for printing copies of "New Hampshire's Five Year Preservation Plan." Copies will then be distributed to NH's public libraries--that's us! If you have a little spare change, think about supporting the project!
When you tour some of the locations featured this month on the NH Preservation blog, you may want to bring along our copy of New Hampshire Architecture: An Illustrated Guide by Bryant F. Tolles, Jr. [720.9742 TOL].
You can read more about NH's preservation efforts in New Hampshire Preservation Alliance News, a quarterly periodical that we have in our magazine area [MAG NEW].

Pick up America's Historic Places: An Illustrated Guide to Our Country's Past [917.3 AME] for a nice overview of the vastness of our national historic heritage.
Preservation--it's not just about canned peaches!
