Great place to get out stretch your legs and walk around the Daniel Webster Birthplace homestead. Open for tours seasonally.

We thought it was to be a part of a state park, however, information was very limited and it was not clear as of the two houses what was what. There was also no one around on a Friday afternoon. I would not recommend going out of your way to see it.

Just house where Daniel Webster was born. A nice man gave us a brief summary of Webster's life etc. glad we stopped but probably won't put an emphasis on recommending it to anyone. Google would accomplish the same thing. However it is an awesome motorcycle ride!

While not on the main highway, finding this place was easy in following the signage, and reading the interpretive boards and seeing the original homestead helps young ones understand we didn't all grow up with the internet and cellphones. Good reminder of what we learned in history in school and how we can appreciate the efforts of others and follow... More

While off the beaten path, the Daniel Webster house is worthy of a visit. Nice drive to get there and rich in history.

It makes one realize what small living quarters were available during this historical time. The restoration is great and the wealth of history is appealing to the history buff.

It will probably take you as long to get here from the highway as it does to listen to the talk by the knowledgeable docent, but it's a nice drive and an informative talk. There's not too much to see - a 2-room house relocated to its original site. As a native New Hampshirite, I'm ashamed to say I had... More
