President Franklin Pierce Home Open for 40th Season in Concord, New Hampshire
New England has some wonderful old homes to visit this summer. Here's one that was once home to a U.S. president in Concord, New Hampshire.
Frankin Pierce was our 14th president and the only president from New Hampshire. The Pierce Manse is the only home ever owned and lived in by President Franklin Pierce. The home is now open for the season to the public and is celebrating it's 40th anniversary season. A celebration will be held on Thursday, July 24, with an open house and concert on the lawn performed by The 39th US Army Band-New Hampshire Army National Guard.
The Pierce Manse is open to the public for guided tours Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m.-3 p.m., June 11-August 30.
The Manse will again be offering fall hours on Fridays and Saturdays only from noon to 3 p.m., September 5-October 11. Admission is $7 for adults, $6 for seniors, $3 for children and students, and $15 for families.
