14 Peacock St, Concord New Hampshire
Family home from 1842 to 1848 of Franklin Pierce, the Concord
Lawyer who was to become the 14th President of the United States
and the only one from the Granite State. Threatened with demolition by an Urban Renewal project back in 1966, the only Concord house ever owned and occupied by Franklin Pierce was saved by The Pierce Brigade which, in 1971, moved it to its present site in Concord's Historic District. The log cabin of the first Congregational minister once stood here. The Brigade owns the house and maintains it as a memorial to New Hampshire's only President.
