Beech Hill is a historic former summer estate off New Harrisville Road in Dublin, New Hampshire. The centerpiece of the estate, and its only major surviving element, is a large Georgian Revival mansion with hip roof and wide projecting eaves, which commands spectacular views of the area. The house was designed by Charles A. Platt for his sister and brother-in-law, and built in 1902-3. From 1949 into the 1980s the property was used for a variety of medical and substance abuse treatment purposes.[2]

The estate house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1] The house remains in private hands; most of the estate is now local conservation land, with public hiking trails.[3]
