Project Detail

The Victory Park Historic District of Manchester, New Hampshire, encompasses Victory Park, a city park laid out in 1838, and four buildings that face it across adjacent streets. Originally called Concord Square, Victory Park was laid out by the proprietors of the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company who founded Manchester. The park was sold by the proprietors to the city for $1 in 1848, conditioned on making alterations that would transform it into a park. The city did not immediately act on the required conditions, but it had by the 1870s become more parklike, with a fountain and thickly-planted trees.
