Franklin Pierce Homestead
301 Second New Hampshire Turnpike, Hillsborough, NH • Ph: 603-478-3165
The Franklin Pierce Homestead was the childhood home of the fourteenth President of the United States, Franklin Pierce. Located in Hillsborough, New Hampshire, the home was built in 1804 by Pierce’s father, Benjamin Pierce. The home is one of Franklin Pierce’s probable places of birth, the other now lying beneath nearby Franklin Pierce Lake. Pierce lived at the homestead until 1834 when he married, with the exception of a seven-year span spent away for school, college, and law study.
