HISTORICAL ATTRACTIONS:

The Old Meeting House Green where the first settlers built their first meeting house in 1638. Here, the first homes were built in Hampton (then called "Winnacunnet.) The Green also contains buildings belonging to the Hampton Historical Society, the Tuck Memorial Museum, the Fire Museum, the Farm Museum and the one-room district schoolhouse.

NORSEMAN'S ROCK was originally located off Thorvald Avenue in the area known as Surfside Park off Winnacunnet Road. The rock was later moved to the Meeting House Green at 40 Park Avenue. This rock is thought to mark the burial site of Leif Erickson's brother, Thorvald, who was killed by Native Americans in 1008 A. D. Legends of local Indians and Viking mythology support this belief, and markings on the rock are thought to be of Viking origin.
