The Manchester Village Historic District, in Manchester, is 39 acres in size, located on Route 127 in the center of town, in a rough arc around the head of the town's harbor. The buildings in the District represent an excellent sampling of virtually every major type of vernacular architecture from the 17th to the early 20th Century. Forster Cemetery, the Tappan Cemetery and the 1661 Cemetery, and also the Manchester Common, are the Village's main sites. Also included is the Trask House, home of the Manchester Historical Society.
