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.
Located in Concord, New Hampshire, the historic home is open to the public and school groups for guided tours. The Pierce Manse also serves as the venue for monthly lectures and seasonal events.
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 Pierce Brigade, the totally volunteer nonprofit group that saved the house from demolition in 1971. The house was moved, was restored, and has been open to the public as a museum since 1974. The Brigade’s mission is to preserve the home and legacy of New Hampshire’s only president. The Pierce Manse is a member of the New England Museum Association.
