Concord has been rated one of the safest and best places to live - not only in New Hampshire, but in the country.
CONCORD, NH (Oct. 2017) - The Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce’s efforts to welcome weekend visitors to the New Hampshire State House got a green light and on Saturday, Oct. 7 and Oct. 14 complimentary guided tours will depart from the State House Visitor Center at 107 North Main Street every 30 minutes from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Additional weekend guided tours will be available on Saturday Dec . 9 when the NH State House is decorated for the holidays.
“Whether you’re a history enthusiast, or a local who has visited the State House numerous times on business, this tour will astound you with its rich narrative and all that still goes on here in New Hampshire’s capital city,” said Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce President Tim Sink. “This is a wonderful opportunity to draw visitors who may not realize that Concord has a newly accessible downtown with lots of local shops and restaurants.”
In 2016, the Chamber conducted a successful pilot program that helped determine the demand and future possibility of weekend State House tours. Local businesses have provided “a very positive response,” said Sink and the following sponsors have stepped forward to help cover the security costs required to open the State House on weekends: Northeast Delta Dental, Cleveland, Waters and Bass, The Duprey Companies, Marshall’s Florist and New Hampshire Auto Dealers Association. The State House visitor’s center staff will conduct the tours with the help of volunteers from Granite State Ambassadors.
