City seeks to save historic house


CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -The city is trying to move a historic house that sits in the way of a road that will make it easier to get from Interstate 89 to Concord Hospital.

Morton and Carolyn Tuttle have gone to court to stall construction of the Langley Parkway, but the project has been inching closer and closer to their back door. The city has been trying for at least seven years to find a place to move their home, a 1933 Cape that is on the National Register of Historical Places, but the couple has rejected all of the proposed sites.

The home is historic because it was owned by Donald Tuttle, the editor of the first magazine to promote New Hampshire as a four-season getaway in the late 1920s.

The latest offer involves asking another couple to subdivide their property. A hearing on that proposal is set for Wednesday.
