This 1804 mansion offers a window to our past, and the world of Franklin Pierce's childhood.

Operated by the Hillsborough Historical Society, the boyhood home of America's fourteenth president is a spacious and beautiful, federal style country home. Built by Pierce's father, 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.
