GORHAM, N.H. (AP) - A Queen Anne-style home occupied by a railroad worker in Gorham, New Hampshire, has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The George Washington Noyes house is one of three grand homes built on Soldier’s Hill after Gorham suffered a fire in 1879. Ground was broken for all three homes in 1891, and the Noyes family moved into theirs two years later.

Noyes had spent most of his career working for the Grand Trunk Railroad, working his way up from the track building crew to master mechanic.

The three-story home with an attached barn has a bay window, octagonal turret and wraparound porch. Electrical features from the 1920s and stained glass windows are still in place.
