Concord New Hampshire Historic Places

Concord, the capitol of the state of New Hampshire is rich in history dating back to the early 1700's. Main Street in Concord was created in 1726. It is about this time that Concord's history as an economic center of New Hampshire began to take shape and New Hampshire's economic base was formed. Below, we have outlined some of the historical places in Concord NH:

 

NH State House

In 1808 Concord was chosen for the capitol of New Hampshire due to it's central location within the state of New Hampshire. The construction of the New Hampshire State House was completed in 1819. The state house was designed by architect Stuart Park. When the state house was built, it was 2 stories high, built from granite mined right here in New Hampshire by prisoners housed at the NH state prison. The NH state house was expanded and it's dome was added in 1866. The state house was expanded again in 1910 by adding a 3rd story and West wing.

 

NH State House Annex

The NH State House Annex was built in the late 1930's to accommodate the rapidly growing size of the NH state government.

 

Norris Bakery

The Norris Bakery building at 16-18 S. Main St. was used from the 1860's until the 1920's. The bakery was believed to be among the largest bakeries in the state of New Hampshire. Norris Bakery delivered bread to the military camps by horse and wagon. The bakery was later turned into a movie theater in the 1930's and it remained a theater until 1994.

 

Statesman Building

The Statesman Building, located at 18 N. Main St. was used for the Statesman Newspaper which was bought out by the Concord Monitor. The statesman building was the first building in Concord to use electricity.

 

Sears Roebuck Department Store

Sears Roebuck was located at 19 S. Main St in Concord and claimed to be the largest department store in the state of New Hampshire.

 

First Church of Christ

The First Church of Christ is located on the corner of North State St and School St in Concord NH. The church is currently the tallest building in Concord. It's 165 foot steeple towers over the city of Concord. The building is built from granite from a nearby granite quarry in Concord. This church was founded by the famous Mary Baker Eddy who donated $100,000.00 towards to the construction of the church.

 

South Congregational Church

The South Congregational Church is located at 27 Pleasant St in Concord, NH. The church was designed by the minister's brother (Charles Parker). The cross on the steeple of the church was the focus of controversy for many years as it was seen as a symbol of the Roman Catholic faith.

 

Sacred Heart Church

The Sacred Heart Church is located at 52 Pleasant St in Concord, NH. The house next to the church at 54 Pleasant St was purchased to be used as the church's rectory.

 

New Phenix Hall

The New Phenix Hall is located at 40 North Main St. The original Phenix Hall ("Old Phenix Hall") burned down in 1893. Both Phenix Halls featured an auditorium and were used for political and sporting events. The New Phenix Hall has a stage that rolls out. New Phenix Hall once featured a bridge that connected the Phenix Hotel next door across the alley. Both Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt spoke at the New Phenix Hall in Concord, NH.
