Cruising New Hampshire History

Meet Michael Bruno, author of the popular book Cruising New Hampshire History, a guide to New Hampshire's roadside historical markers. 

Wednesday, March 20 at 6:30 pm.

New Hampshire history is uniquely on display along the byways of the Granite State. These historical markers commemorate significant events and individuals from the first settlers arriving in 1623 to notable individuals who helped define what New Hampshire is today. New Hampshire also played a major role in the birth of our nation. From Revolutionary battlefields to individuals of political influence, the Granite State has made an indelible mark on history. This book explores the 255 New Hampshire historical markers that dot the state highways and roads. Each marker is described with its location (to include GPS coordinates), date installed, marker inscription, and expanded historical references of the event or individual. Information may also be provided about other points of interest in the vicinity of the historical marker.

So grab your keys and road maps! Register for this interesting, informative program online or call us at 432-6140 for more info.
