A Berlin Building and few town halls made it on this years list of The “Seven to Save”;  for the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance. Since 2006, the program has focused attention and resources on significant historic properties that are threatened by deterioration or insufficient funds. Structures that make the list are selected based on theirhistoric significance, the degree to which they are threatened and the potential that making the list could dramatically alter their fate.  Past Structures that have made the list in the past include truss and stone-arched bridges, inns, churches, meeting houses, schools and three of the state’s grand hotels — the Balsams, the Mount Washington and Bretton Wooods.

Berlin, Brown Company House: Believed to be the oldest wood frame building in the city and a key part of the history of mills and logging in Berlin.

Bradford Town Hall: A landmark now vacant pending voter-approved funding for upgrades that would meet current codes and allow reopening the second floor hall for community use.

Epping, Watson Academy: A rare Queeen Anne style school building needs town support for a simple plan to address damage caused by a minor earthquake.

Hopkinton, Kimball Lake Cabins: A Depression-era lakeside resort with four remaining log cabins closed since the 1980s.

Manchester, Hill-Lassonde House: An Italianate style home that is highly vulnerable.

Stewartstown, Poore Family Farm: Needs more support to preserve its early house and barn.

Washington Meetinghouse/Town Hall: An 18th century building that doesn’t meet the town’s 21st century office and meeting space needs.

Historic Family Farms and Agricultural Landscapes: The loss of cultivated acreage and challenges facing family farms will require efforts to help maintain historic buildings and traditional landscapes.
