Folsom Tavern in Exeter, N.H.

A tavern that hosted George Washington in 1789 is among nine properties that were recently added to the New Hampshire State Register of Historic Places.

Folsom Tavern in Exeter was built at the time of the American Revolution and is now part of the American Independence Museum.

It was added to the register by the State Historical Resources Council, along with eight other properties, including schoolhouses in Chatham and Sutton, a general store in Milton and churches in Concord and East Grafton.

Benefits of being included on the register include relief from some building codes and pre-qualification for many grant programs.
