Somersworth New Hampshire
Hilltop Historic District Resurvey Project

Historic Documentation Company, Inc. has recently completed the resurvey of sixty-two historic properties within the Hilltop Historic District located in the City of Somersworth New Hampshire. The project involved archival digital and film photography of the mostly nineteenth-century properties within the district and preparation of comprehensive digital inventory forms integrated into a searchable database of architectural and historical information for use by the Somersworth Historic District Commission.

The Hilltop Historic District has a dense collection of well-preserved and richly detailed properties. A few elements are shown above located on the 1892 map.
