HOLDERNESS, N.H. (AP) - A chapel and a farm in New Hampshire are the latest additions in the state to the National Register of Historic Places.

The open-air Chocorua Island Chapel on Church Island in Holderness has had a key social role in Squam Lake’s summer community. Services accompanied activities at Camp Chocorua, a youth camp for boys.

The altar, lectern made from stones, bell, and other features were installed between 1881 and 1920.

Drake Farm in North Hampton is a connected complex with a 2 ½-story house, two-story kitchen wing, and two barns.

A plaque commemorates the life of Col. Abraham Drake, who served in the French and Indian Wars and the Revolutionary War. He also witnessed the surrender of Gen. Burgoyne at Saratoga.
