The Pierce Manse is the only home ever owned and lived in by President Franklin Pierce, a New Hampshire native and the 14th President of the United States.
Take a step back in time by touring President Pierce's historic home. Using hands-on objects, primary source documents, and visual clues in the historic house, visitors will learn about what life was like in the mid-19th century for Franklin Pierce, his wife Jane, and their two sons.
The Manse is owned and operated by the volunteer Pierce Brigade, whose mission is to preserve the home and legacy of New Hampshire’s only president.
The Pierce Manse, Franklin Pierce's Concord home, was saved from demolition by the Pierce Brigade in 1971.
The Pierce Manse is open for guided tours June-October each year and by appointment.
