Hampton History Matters I

The famous sandy beaches and first-class boardwalk of Hampton, New Hampshire often overshadow its long and robust history. In this eclectic collection of stories, historian and columnist Cheryl Lassiter invites readers behind the scenes for a fascinating look at some of its lesser known residents and surprising events.

“The town [of Hampton] is a fascinating mix of history and economics peopled by a lively cast of characters, and so is Cheryl Lassiter’s book. She is an entertaining and very well-informed writer.” —Jeanne Ryder, editor, Leavitt Family Association newsletter.





Heartfelt thanks to Karen Raynes, a former newspaper correspondent and former Hampton Historical Society board member, and to the Board of Trustees of the Tuck Museum of Hampton History and Betty Moore, Tuck Museum Executive Director emeritus, for generously allowing access to the museum’s archives and for reprint permissions.

    The front and back cover look great. What is inside I know from following your Hampton Union History Matters column will be a fine collection of tasty Hampton history tales. You are an inspiration and a gift to Hampton as writer and story teller. Many Thanks and keep being inspired. We all benefit from your talent. I am next going to Amazon.com to purchase my copy of Hampton History Matters.
