Hidden History of the New Hampshire Seacoast

Join us on Wednesday, September 25th at 6:30pm as Terry Nelson shares true stories from his book, Hidden History of the New Hampshire Seacoast. "The New Hampshire Seacoast has a wealth of overlooked history. Some remnants are hidden in plain sight, and others are just plain hidden. Meet the minister and early religious founder who was involved in an armed confrontation in Dover with another preacher in 1640. Find out how a onetime high school assistant principal in Rochester became a world-famous business leader and ended up meeting President Grover Cleveland. Discover the story of “ghost” racetracks in Somersworth before they disappear, as well as the “pile of rocks” that stopped a multimillion-dollar building project in Windham. Author Terry Nelson reveals some of New England’s most fascinating history, from Durham and Madbury to North Hampton and Portsmouth." (Quote taken from the back cover of the book.) Presented in conjunction with the Windham Historical Society.
