The New Hampshire Historical Society is the premier organization saving, preserving, and sharing Granite State history. The Society's 1911 headquarters building, located in the heart of the capital city, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is home to exhibitions about New Hampshire's history, art, and culture. Current exhibitions showcase hundreds of objects, photographs, and documents, including Native American artifacts; items from the Revolutionary period through the Civil War and World War II; the original 1818 eagle that once sat atop the state capitol; portraits of notable New Hampshire residents such as Franklin Pierce and Daniel Webster; early furniture, silver, and other decorative arts; 19th-century White Mountain landscape paintings; and memorabilia from New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation primaries.
