Near Berlin in Coos County, New Hampshire — The American Northeast (New England)
Maynesborough's First Residence
On the knoll north of this site, William Sessions and his nephew, Cyrus Wheeler erected "the first building that could be honored with the name of house" in what is now Berlin, NH. Sessions helped clear many other farms in the area. In the 20th century, the property was the Brown Company farm. The two barns still extant housed draft horses for the logging side of the business; the larger was moved about ¼ mile south from W.R. Brown's Arabian horse stud-farm in 1947.
Erected 2009 by New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources. (Marker Number 215.)
