MANCHESTER (AP) — A historic home in Manchester, New Hampshire, that was on a preservation group's "Seven to Save" list two years ago has been demolished to make way for a parking lot.
The 2 ½-story wood frame house was built in 1850 for Amoskeag machinist Alpheus Burgess. At one point, it was the home of modernist painter Omer T. Lassonde.
The New Hampshire Preservation Alliance put the Italianate-style home on its list in 2014. The building was vacant for years and owned by a bank.
Efforts to save the property did not succeed.
