Daniel Webster Farm
Designated by the National Trust for Historic Preservation as one of the 11 Most Endangered Historic Places, the Daniel Webster Farm was recently saved from developers by a coalition of preservation and conservation groups including The Trust for Public Land, Land and Community Heritage Investment Program, New Hampshire Preservation Alliance, and the Webster Farm Preservation Alliance, of which Colin Cabot is president. These groups worked together to obtain financing and grants to protect the farm from development and preserve the historic structures.
The farm will now become the Webster Place Recovery Center, assisting individuals with substance abuse or dependence in their recovery.
We are proud to have contributed to the preservation of this important historical site. For more information about this important preservation project, click on the photo at left.
Haverhill-Bath Covered Bridge
Covered bridges are an important part of our regional history and a hallmark of New England. Many of our historic bridges have fallen into disrepair, or have been removed or replaced. The Haverhill-Bath Covered Bridge was built in 1827 at a cost of $2,400.00 and it is believed to be the oldest documented covered bridge in the country. The bridge was in use until 1999 when it was finally closed to vehicular traffic.
Restoration is currently underway on this important local gem. Needless to say, in this day in age, the costs will significantly exceed the original construction costs of 180 years ago!
HG Wood is proud to have contributed to the restoration of this important local architectural gem. For more information about the restoration, click on any of the links in this text or on the photo at left.
