Cruising New Hampshire History;

 

A Guide to New Hampshire's Roadside Historical Markers

 

 

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 also 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. This book explores the 255 New Hampshire historical markers that dot the state highways and roads. Each marker is described with its location (to include GPS coordinates), date installed, marker inscription, and expanded historical references of this event/individual. Information may also be provided about other points of interest in the vicinity of the historical marker.

In 2017, Michael wrote and sponsored an historical marker commemorating Frances Glessner Lee, who made significant contributions to the study of forensics. Michael is also a certified New Hampshire Granite State Ambassador. In his spare time, Michael enjoys hiking in the White Mountains and riding his motorcycle with his wife Kristin along the country roads of New Hampshire.
