New Hampshire State House Concord Reviews
New Hampshire History Oct 13, 2008
The New Hampshire State House, located in Concord, NH is the oldest continually used state legislative building in the nation. It has been in use perpetually since 1819. The building houses both the state Senate and state House of Representatives.
Margo and I were in Concord over Columbus Day, so there was not very many people in the State House at all. We were actually surprised it was open. This gave us a very different perspective than what a normal tourist would see. While we did not have ability to see either chamber in session, we did get better visual access to those rooms.
There is history everywhere you look in this building. From the many displays or pictures of prominent New Hampshire denizen (not just politicians) to the battle flag display, to the sculpture and Liberty Bell replica on the grounds.
They have a small gift shop and free tours are offered, during normal hours. It is all free, which makes it that much more attractive.
