Franklin Pierce Homestead was the home the 14th president of the United States from his infancy until his marriage in 1834. The Pierce Homestead is a fine example of New Hampshire village architecture. It is a two-story frame building with a hipped roof. Built by Pierce's father in 1804, it reflects the gracious and affluent living of the nineteenth century. A ballroom, which extends the entire length of the second floor, was used for entertaining neighbors and distinguished families of the state and nation.
Franklin Pierce shared Daniel Webster's dedication to national unity and led our country during the most trying of times, the time of slavery. Private tours & large group tours can be arranged. The Homestead collections include items on loan from the Hillsborough Historical Society and the New Hampshire Historical Society. The Homestead can be reached at (603) 478-3165 for more information.
