The Abbot-Spalding House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and on the New Hampshire State Register of Historic Places. It is important both historically and architecturally. As the home of a succession of prominent Nashua citizens, it has witnessed a series of transitions that changed the house with the changing needs and tastes of its owners. Most of the collection in the Abbot-Spalding house are antiques collected by William Spalding, and the historical society has enhanced the collection with items from our collection.
The Abbot Spalding House Museum will be open and staffed with volunteers, and the self-guided tour at the Speare Museum will be open as well.
