New Hampshire group pushes landmark preservation 7 at a time

CONCORD (AP) — A New Hampshire group's "seven at a time" list to save historic buildings, barns and bridges is adding up to success.
In the 10 years since the New Hampshire Preservation Society launched its annual list of seven sites to preserve, it says, more than half of those have been saved from the wrecking ball. Some of the structures have been converted into other uses; others have been preserved entirely.
This year's list of seven, released last week, includes a one-room schoolhouse, a marble church dating to the 1800s, an estate barn, a former railroad-era inn and a historic hotel known as the Sanborn House.
Among those, the Sanborn House is probably most at risk. A developer wants to demolish it and replace it with a big box retailer.
