John Berry House in Pittsfield, New Hampshire

As part of our weekly building history series, today we take a look at the John Berry House in Pittsfield, New Hampshire:

“‘Uncle’ John Berry occupied this house until his death in 1880. One of the most prominent residents of Pittsfield during the 19th Century, he was one of the founders of the Academy and was the first president of the Pittsfield Savings Bank.  He was a super patriot and made many ‘cheering’ trips to soldiers during the Civil War.  Mr. Berry was largely responsible for bringing the railraod to Pittsfield. Upon his death he donated Berry Park to the town.”
