The Pierce Manse is a historic house museum located in Concord, New Hampshire. It was the home of the 14th President of the United States, Franklin Pierce, who lived there from 1842-1848, not long before his Presidency.
Franklin Pierce and his wife Jane Pierce moved here after she persuaded him to resign his seat in the United States Senate and leave Washington, D.C.. They owned the home from 1842 to 1848. Pierce resumed his law practice and also served as district attorney and chairman of the Democratic Party.
In 1971 the building was threatened with demolition as part of an urban renewal project. Locals created the "Pierce Brigade", an organization to raise funds to purchase and save the home. Due to their efforts, the building was moved from Montgomery Street in Concord to its present location.
