Hinsdale House named to historic register

The Hinsdale House in New Hampshire, built by the town’s namesake in 1759, has been named to the State Register of Historic Places. Colonel Ebenezer Hinsdale was an ordained minister and veteran of the French and Indian War. It is unknown if Hinsdale ever lived at the house, but historians say it was used for defense purposes during the war and as a trading post. John Smith, the president of the Hinsdale Historical Society, which holds its monthly and quarterly meetings at the house, told the Brattleboro Reformer that it is gratifying to know the property’s importance has been validated by New Hampshire.
