Daniel Webster Family Home, also known as The Elms, in West Franklin, New Hampshire, is a property that was owned by the family of Daniel Webster.
Webster's father, Ebenezer, bought the property in 1800, while Daniel was a student at Dartmouth College. The property passed in 1806 to Daniel's brother Ezekiel, who died in 1829, at which time Daniel bought it. The Elms served as an "experimental farm" and "vacation retreat" for Webster while he lived in Massachusetts, and the land was a gravesite for his parents, brothers and sisters.
It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1974.
It is located on South Main Street, R.F.D. #2, in West Franklin.
The property is now part of the Webster Place Recovery Center, a substance abuse program of Easter Seals New Hampshire, which treats those recovering from alcohol and drug addiction.

“If Im on skates, I feel at home no matter what Im doing. If they wanted me to sing and dance I think I could do it just because I was on skates. When Im not on skates, though, I feel very strange.”

“Like plowing, housework makes the ground ready for the germination of family life. The kids will not invite a teacher home if beer cans litter the living room. The family isnt likely to have breakfast together if somebody didnt remember to buy eggs, milk, or muffins. Housework maintains an orderly setting in which family life can flourish.”
—Letty Cottin Pogrebin (20th century)
“Fair nymph, if fame or honour were
To be attained with ease,
Then would I come and rest me there,”
