Dr. R.P.J. Tenney House in Pittsfield, New Hampshire

As part of our weekly building history series (on Mondays normally), today we take a look at the Dr. R.P.J. Tenney House in Pittsfield, New Hampshire:

“In 1856 Dr. Tenney erected his homestead on this property but a disastrous fire in 1873 leveled everything.  He then built the finest house in Pittsfield and the first to have steam heat.  Dr. Tenney was on the Governor’s Council from 1861-63, and was President of the N.H. Medical Society in 1867.  The lot originally contained the Town Pound and John Cram’s corn barn where Pittsfield’s first school and religious exercises were  held.”
