FRANKLIN, N.H. (AP) – The organization working to save the former home of Daniel Webster in Franklin is offering the property for sale or lease.

The Trust for Public Land says it will lease or sell the Webster house and six other buildings off Route 3. The 141 acres are protected by a conservation easement which means it cannot be developed or broken into smaller parcels.

Whitney Hatch, the group’s New England director, says the group is seeking new uses for the aging buildings that would improve the buildings and be consistent with the rural, historic setting.

The buildings include Webster’s home, a school house, chapel, dormitories and dining halls.
