Share your NH photos, give input about preservation plan

To help celebrate May as Preservation Month, the New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources is asking Granite Staters to share images of their favorite New Hampshire historical places online.

“My New Hampshire” will include images of historic buildings and structures, residential neighborhoods, downtowns, historic or rural landscapes, and archaeological sites.

Photographers are asked to provide the photo’s location and a short description of why the place is special to them. Anyone submitting a photo must acknowledge that they hold its copyright or that the photo is in the public domain.

Photos received by Sept. 8 may be used to illustrate the next edition of New Hampshire’s Five-Year Preservation Plan, 2016-20.

In addition to photo submissions to “My New Hampshire,” the NHDHR is seeking public input for the preservation plan. Individuals may offer their thoughts about historic preservation in New Hampshire by taking a short online questionnaire.

“So much preservation in New Hampshire happens at the local level,” said Elizabeth Muzzey, director of the NHDHR and state historic preservation officer. “The plan will celebrate those successes, as well as develop strategies to address local challenges and needs.”

For more information about “My New Hampshire” and the preservation plan and a link to the questionnaire, visit nh.gov/nhdhr and click on “NH’s Five-Year Preservation Plan” in the “Quick Links” box on the right. The questionnaire will close at the end of Preservation Month, May 31; “My New Hampshire” is ongoing.

New Hampshire’s Division of Historical Resources, the “State Historic Preservation Office,” was established in 1974. The historical, archeological, architectural, engineering and cultural resources of New Hampshire are among the most important environmental assets of the state. Historic preservation promotes the use, understanding and conservation of such resources for the education, inspiration, pleasure and enrichment of New Hampshire’s residents.
