Nominations are now available for the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance’s Seven to Save. The program focuses attention and resources on significant historic properties in New Hampshire that are threatened by neglect, deterioration, insufficient funds, inappropriate development, and/or insensitive public policy. Nominations are due Friday September 11th, 2020, and the announcement will be in October, 2020.
To date, 98 resources have been listed to Seven to Save, with more than half saved. Many owners and advocates for the former listees used the designation to help secure new ideas and investments. Many are in the process of rehabilitation, while others continue to need significant investment. A few have been lost.
Criteria for selection include: historical significance, imminence of threat, and potential impact of listing a site. Anyone can make a nomination. If you have questions about the program, or think a certain building would benefit from such a designation, firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the office at (603) 224-2281.
