Our 2009 Hillsborough Christmas Ornament is a face-on view of the historic Franklin Pierce Homestead. This was the boyhood home to the 14th President of the United States.

Built in 1804 as a home to Benjamin Pierce, hero of the Revolutionary War and twice New Hampshire governor. Franklin Pierce spent half his life in this elegant mansion. The Homestead is a living museum and has been restored to its early 19th century appearance. It features original stenciling, 1824 wallpaper, period furnishings, and historical mementos of the Pierce family.

The 2009 Pierce Homestead Christmas ornament was created by Jon Gibson and designed by Roger Goode of The Proper Pup Studio. Proceeds from the sale of this year’s ornament will be used exclusively for needed building repairs at the Homestead.
