"the 14th President's home" North Branch by Rich62

North Branch Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 3 photos

North Branch (or Hillsborough), New Hampshire

Franklin Pierce was the only U.S. President from New Hampshire.

The home is located 3 or 4 miles east of North Branch on highway 9, which is also hwy 202. However, it really is more closely affiliated with a town called Hillsborough, or possibly one called "Hillsborough Lower Village." The problem is that VT does not have those towns in their system so I had to put North Branch.

THE HOME

Sadly, Pierce and his wife suffered terrible tragedies in their lives. All three of their children died. The oldest lived to be 11, but was killed in a horrific train accident in which he was decapitated in front of his father. Pierces wife never fully recovered from this grief, and possibly neither of them did.

STONE WALL

A REVOLUTIONARY-ERA STONE WALL near the house.
