DescriptionFranklin Pierce Homestead is operated by the Hillsborough Historical Society, is the boyhood home of America's fourteenth president and is a spacious and beautiful, federal style country home. Built by Pierce's father in 1804, it reflects the gracious and affluent living of the nineteenth century. A ballroom, which extends the entire length of the second floor, was used for entertaining neighbors and distinguished families of the state and nation. Franklin Pierce shared Daniel Webster's dedication to national unity and led our country during the most trying of times, the time of slavery. Private tours & large group tours, both coinciding & outside the public hours & months, can be arranged. The Pierce Homestead is available, at a fee, for small private functions & meetings.

Franklin Pierce Homestead State Historic Site has picnicking and parking.
