CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- A ski resort, two cemeteries and a university dormitory are among the properties being added to the New Hampshire State Register of Historic Places.

Gunstock Mountain Resort in Gilford, which started in 1935 as the Belknap Mountains Recreation Area, was the largest Works Progress Administration project in the state.

The High Street Cemetery in Benton and Seabrook's Methodist Cemetery are on the list. Both chronicle the lives of early settlers who created the communities. Plymouth State University's Mary Lyon Hall was built as a dormitory in 1915 when the institution was known as Plymouth Normal School.

Also on the list are the W.F. Palmer Place in Sandwich, a farm and general store; and three properties within the Enfield Village Historic District. Its buildings date back to 1800.
