The Chase House Inn is a historic property in the heart of the beautiful upper valley along the Connecticut River. This elegant property is honored as one of the 23 National Historic Landmarks in New Hampshire as the birth home of Salmon P Chase (1808-1873). Chase was the Secretary of Treasury under Abraham Lincoln. He was also largely responsible the formation of the federal banking system, the first person on the US $1 bill and the only person to appear on the $10,000 bill. Though he never worked there, friends named Chase Manhattan Bank of New York in his honor after his death. He was also a senator and governor of Ohio and a Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court until his death in 1873.
The original colonial settlement home built circa 1766 was later fronted by a federal style building in 1795. After a significant restoration in 1986, in 1992 a major addition was completed which added a circa 1800 federal style house providing a wonderful vaulted ceiling gathering space with a large stone fireplace and a third story performance area. Also added at this time were living spaces and additional rooms in keeping with the tradition of New England's connected farm building style.
With a private pond, a small orchard, wide open lawns as well as nature trails, the grounds are a wonderful compliment to your relaxing stay at this wonderful inn.
