Event Details

Curious to know more about the Historical Markers that dot the roadsides throughout New Hampshire?  Come to the free presentation, “Cruising New Hampshire History – A Guide to Roadside Historical Markers” at 7:00PM on Thursday, July 11, in the New Boston Community Church.

Author Michael Bruno traveled the length and width of New Hampshire to photograph and research all of our state’s 255 historical markers.  He will speak about some of the markers that commemorate significant events and individuals in New Hampshire
history.  Mike lives in Bethlehem, NH and is a Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps teacher at White Mountain Regional High School.

This free program is co-sponsored by the New Boston Historical Society and the Whipple Free Library. (Remember: the meeting is in the Community Church!) Refreshments will be served after the program. Mike Bruno’s recently published book, “Cruising New Hampshire History,” will be available for purchase and signing.

Did you know that New Boston has three historical markers? There's an official state marker on the town common which describes the "Molly Stark" cannon from the Revolutionary War, and two markers on the River Road (Route 13) which honor Ronald Davis, a New Boston man who died in the Vietnam War.  After 45 years, the Davis Scenic Drive markers need to be renewed. The New Boston Historical Society will ship at least one of the markers to the manufacturer to be refurbished, and we welcome your donation.  Please mail your check written to the “New Boston Historical
Society” to us at PO Box 595, New Boston, NH 03070.  Write “Ronald Davis Historical Marker” in the memo line.  Thank you!
