Seven to Save listees in Manchester from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Seven to Save listing has helped to attract new investment and re-use options for over 50% of the community landmarks that have received the designation since the program began in 2006. Seven to Save attracts attention to threats and helps forge possible solutions for endangered properties. Examples include several projects that received statewide preservation awards earlier this year: Watson Academy in Epping, the Langdon Meetinghouse, and Brewster Memorial Hall in Wolfeboro. Seven to Save sites that still need more creative planning, new investment, and advocacy include Concord’s iconic Gas Holder House, the Chandler House in Manchester, Sanborn Seminary in Kingston, and the former Brown Paper Company’s R & D building in Berlin. Criteria for Seven to Save include the property’s historical or architectural significance, severity of the current threat, and the extent to which the Seven to Save listing would help in preserving the property.
