When most people think of Hampton, they don’t necessarily think of a historic destination. Most don’t know that Hampton is rich in history. Not only does our own current day hotel date back to the early 1900’s, but Hampton Beach itself has been providing a home to vacationers since the mid 1800’s when the coming of the railroad to the area in 1840 changed everything. However, it wasn’t until the advent of the trolley in 1897 that Hampton become a place of leisurely resort. Today, 375 years later, on an average summer day, Hampton plays host to 100K people—we’ve come a long way baby!
This Saturday, July 13th at 9 am, the Hampton Beach Historical Society is hosting a trolley tour of historic Hampton Beach. Participate and learn more about our great area!
