Concord's First Hospital Building Added To Historic Register

Dec 22, 2014

The last remaining building from Concord's first hospital has been added to the New Hampshire State Register of Historic Places.

The New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources says the Margaret Pillsbury General Hospital Annex was part of a complex that opened in 1891. The first Concord building constructed solely for use as a hospital, Margaret Pillsbury General Hospital was deliberately located in a working-class section of the city at a time when the Abbott-Downing stagecoach company and the Boston and Maine Railroad were major employers.

For the last 40 years, various state agencies have had offices in the building, including the Department of Cultural Resources.
