CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - It took six years, but efforts to conserve a historical agricultural area in Concord are now complete.

Officials say it’s unusual for so-called agricultural neighborhoods to remain intact within city limits, but that the “Stickney Hill Agricultural Neighborhood” has retained an exceptionally high degree of integrity of location, setting, and design over the years.

The area is cut off from the rest of the city by Turkey Pond and Route 89 and is defined by three farms with open fields. The last piece needed to ensure its conservation was the signing of an easement protecting 18 acres of fields at the Pierce farm.

Funding for the purchase of the Pierce easement came from the Concord Conservation Commission, the Land and Community Heritage Investment Program and other groups.
