CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Several farmhouses are among the five properties added to the New Hampshire State Register of Historic Places.

The additions are the John Prescott Chase Farm in Epping; the Freedom Town Hall; the Union House Tavern in Haverhill; the Huse House in Manchester; and the Baker Homstead in New Boston.

In Epping, the Georgian-style Chase farmhouse has become a model of the town’s agricultural history from 1785 to the present.

The Freedom Town Hall was built in 1889. The Greek Revival building is still a gathering center.

The brick Union House building served as a tavern and stagecoach shop for most of the 19th century, and has been a farm for much of its history.



In Manchester, the Huse House was built around 1809 which was updated to a Greek Revival-style farmhouse in 1844. It also served as library, post office, store and tavern.

The Baker Homestead, whose building frame was completed in 1756, exists as a Georgian-style farmhouse with an attached shed and barn.

A benefit of being listed on the state register includes the pre-qualification for grant programs, including Conservation License Plate and New Hampshire Land and Community Heritage Investment Program grants.
