Do You Know The History of Hampton Beach New Hampshire? It’s Pretty Incredible

Hampton Beach has a Long History of Being a Cool Place. I fell down a rabbit hole on the internet found a cool video of the history of Hampton Beach. It showcases the history and some of the pictures from back in the day are wild. The place really started to party when a trolley line and railroad made Hampton Beach a popular resort town. Back in the 1850’s most of Hampton Beach was still a farming community and native Americans still camped out on the beach. The mixture of tourists and people that made Hampton their hometown year-round must have been fascinating.

McCarthy: Sununu’s ambitions are the safety and prosperity of New Hampshire

In response to Dr. James Fieseher’s missive of July 29th, I offer the following to consider:. By his own admission Dr. Fieseher praises the mask mandates made early on by our governor. Then, Dr. Fieseher criticizes the Governor for now waiving penalties for those who violated the mask mandate. Politicians live and learn. I would suggest that it is refreshing to have the opportunity to correct something in real time and stand by it. The governor should be praised for his fortitude and resolve to own up to changing a previous decision.
