The New Hampshire State Register of Historic Places is a register of historic places by the state of New Hampshire and the New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources. Buildings, districts, sites, landscapes (such as cemeteries, parks or town forests), structures, or objects can be added to the list. Once listed there are no restrictions or requirements imposed by the state, and owners can maintain, manage or demolish the property as they choose. However, any change that harms or destroys its historical significance can result in removal from the State Register.
Sites eligible for listing are those that possess any of the following:
- ability to tell the story of a significant event or a longer historical trend;
- relation to a person who made important contributions to a community, profession or local tradition;
- tangible merit, such as well-preserved example of local architecture, building methods, etc.;
- identified, but unexcavated and unevaluated archeological site.
Properties listed on the New Hampshire State Register of Historic Places may also be recognized on the National Register of Historic Places, be listed as a National Historic Landmark, or listed as a contributing property in a National Historic District.
