Home

 

Home: The Pierce Homestead, Routes 9 and 31, Hillsboro, NH

Visited: 7/7/10

Log Excerpt: "Headed west to Hillsborough and the Pierce Homestead. This home was built for Benjamin Pierce (Revolutionary war hero, statesman, Governor – interesting guy) and FP moved there when he was one month old (original house gone and location now under a lake). Took another very good personal (and hotter) tour here, with nicely restored or reproduced wall coverings (paper, paint/stencil)."

Home

 

Home: Pierce Manse, 14 Horseshoe Pond Lane, Concord, NH

Visited: 7/7/10

Log Excerpt: "Continued ... to the Pierce Manse, the home Franklin lived in before heading to DC. The house had been moved from downtown where FP was a lawyer and state representative when his father Benjamin was Governor. Uninspiring outside of the house but very nicely restored inside which we saw on a personal (and hot) tour."
