A monument on Loudon Road in Concord, New Hampshire, marks the location where Isaac Hill—a former governor and U.S. senator—lived.
But Hill never lived there. He lived on Main Street, where he ran the New Hampshire Patriot newspaper and courted politicians. For years, the mistake has irked local historians.The marker sits in front of a Goodwill store, but belongs in front of a CVS pharmacy across the river.
"A lot of the evidence of the man is gone," said former city planner Randall Raymond. "What remains is a monument that's worn and in the wrong place. And this was an important man."
"How a granite monument crossed the Merrimack, I don't know," Raymond said. "I don't think it floats." [Link]
