Just seeing the construction of the building is worth the visit. It has some great granite and trade work you do not see in modern construction. There are different exhibits that tell the history of New Hampshire. We enjoyed our visit.

While walking around Concord, stopped by to tour the historical society building. You do need to pay a small price to get in. A lot of very nice historical paintings and a few historical artifacts.
