A must for history lovers and people following the Presidential trail. A nice tour and well done. Hours are a bit limited which makes scheduling hard. The word manse makes it difficult for many to know what this site is about

Our tour guide was excellent! He was a wealth of information about Franklin Pierce, our 14th President as well as historical facts about Concord. The house contains many items that belonged to the Pierce family. Very informative!

This is something you want to do. Marty, who was our tour guide was absolutely great. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. We got there late and they took us on a tour even though they had to stay late.

We spent about an hour at this wonderful museum and learned the Franklin Pierce story from a docent who made the history come alive. Well worth the $7 entry fee to hear about a President who doesn't get a lot of coverage.

Because we were there on a Sunday, we could not get into the house, but judging from the exterior I think I would try to go back again. The building is located in the Concord Historic District, and I highly recommend you take about 5-10...More
