TPL permanently preserved Daniel Webster’s historic 141-acre farm in Franklin, including scenic riverfront farmland, Daniel Webster’s family home, and historic buildings that were once called home to children orphaned in the Civil War. The project was funded in part with federal USDA Farm and Ranch Land Protection Program funding (FRPP) supported by the New Hampshire congressional delegation, and in partnership with the Land and Community Heritage Investment Program, the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance, and the Webster Farm Preservation Association. Once listed as one of the most endangered historic places in the country, Daniel Webster’s farm continues to be actively farmed. Major investments have transformed the 11 historic buildings into the new home of the Webster Historical Society and Webster Place, a non-profit drug and alcohol treatment center.
