Former pharmaceutical building named to historic register
LANCASTER, N.H. (AP) — A home to a former pharmaceutical company in northern New Hampshire has been named to the state Register of Historic Places.
The 1840s Parker J. Noyes Building on Lancaster’s Main Street was named for the former head of a company that invented machinery to sugarcoat pills.
Parker J. Noyes Redevelopment, a project of the Northern Forest Center, purchased the building in October.
The designation is the result of a successful collaboration between the center, New Hampshire Preservation Alliance, and the town of Lancaster.
The building was on the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance’s “Seven to Save” list last year.
It’s being renovated to make room for a market, a produce distribution group, and apartments.
