Cruising New Hampshire History
July 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Michael Bruno joins us to talk about his book, Cruising New Hampshire History. New Hampshire history is uniquely on display along the highways of the Granite State. The New Hampshire roadside 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 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.
