Seven to Save

The New Hampshire Preservation Alliance created Seven to Save in 2006 to focus 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. Criteria for selection include: historical significance, imminence of threat, and potential impact of listing a site.   

Advocates for these threatened places receive priority attention from the Alliance’s Field Services program and Seven to Save sites frequently gain other important publicity and funding benefits from this designation.  A range of technical and financial resources as well as roll-up-your-sleeves help is needed to advance these preservation projects.  

To date, 91 resources have been listed to Seven to Save, with more than half saved. Many former listees are in the process of rehabilitation, while others continue to need significant investment. A few have been lost. 

If you have questions about the program, or think a certain building would benefit from such a designation, contact Andrew Cushing at or by calling the office at 603-224-2281.
