The Jackson Falls National Register Historic District encompasses the historic village center of Jackson, New Hampshire. It consists of a cluster of buildings centered around the crossing of Jackson Village Road over the Wildcat River, extending on both sides of the river along Five Mile Circuit Road (aka Black Mountain Road) and Carter Notch Road. Most of the properties in the district were built between the 1860s and the 1930s, and are a mix of civic, religious, commercial, and private residential buildings. The most prominent building is probably the Wentworth Castle, which is on the hillside above the Wentworth Hall resort hotel complex. Completed in 1891, it was designed by New York architect William Bates. The district also includes Jackson's 1901 library building, old (1897) town hall, and a community church built in 1846-47.[2] The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.[1]
