New Hampshire Historical Sites & Points of Interest

New Hampshire is full of unique historical gems, including over eight-hundred historical markers and landmarks, and many buildings listed in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). The New Hampshire countryside is particularly known for picturesque covered bridges. As a center of early American commerce, many NH towns have hosted significant textile mills and factories, such as clock manufacturers.
The state's contribution to the founding of the country was significant as one of the original Thirteen Colonies admitted in 1788, and its historical markers reflect many citizens' involvement in the American Revolutionary War, such as the nation's last living soldier of the Revolution. NH history incorporates numerous themes such as the Civil War, religion (the state was home to Mary Baker Eddy, founder of the Christian Science movement, for example), and maritime industry.
New Hampshire has been the birthplace and home to many notables, including author and statesman Daniel Webster, the poet Robert Frost, and Horace Greeley. Another larger-than-life New Hampshirite was the original "Uncle Sam"!

NH historical sites also include some of the most entertaining and kooky ones in the U.S., such as the first reported UFO abduction, and the archeologically unique "Mystery Hill", also known as the "Amercian Stonehenge".
