SUPPORTING THE NOMINATION OF THE COURTHOUSE to SEVEN TO SAVE 2012
The New Hampshire Preservation Alliance created Seven to Save in 2006 to focus attention and resources on significant historic properties in New Hampshire that are threatened by neglect, deterioration, insufficient funds, inappropriate development, and/or insensitive public policy.
Historic resources are eligible for the program if they are over 50 years old and are significant representations of the state's heritage. Besides historical or architectural significance, criteria for Seven to Save also include severity of the current threat to the property and the extent to which the listing will make a difference in preserving or protecting it.
The Courthouse was built c, 1825 by Joseph Coe, local merchant and shipbuilder. It is an excellent example of Federal style brick architecture in the Great Bay area of New Hampshire and bears a close resemblance to other round-cornered brick buildings erected in nearby Dover, Portsmouth, and Newmarket at about the same time.
