Tales of New Hampshire Family Story Time
Story Time Series Offered Every Tuesday through August 29
Sharing stories about the Granite State is a great way to bring families together in a weekly story hour focusing on iconic images of New Hampshire. This fun program is sure to bring a smile to kids and adults alike, as storytellers read classic tales about the Old Man of the Mountain, Lake Winnipesaukee, the Cog railroad, the Concord coach, and New Hampshire's state symbols like ladybugs, lilacs, and pumpkins. Each week features a collection of stories on a different New Hampshire theme, with a visit to the exhibition Discovering New Hampshire to see related museum objects from the Society's collections of over 33,000 artifacts preserving New Hampshire history. This free program, due to the generosity of Concord Pediatric Dentistry, is a perfect introduction for young children to all the things that make the Granite State a great place to live.

Lecture: The Lafayette Trail in New Hampshire

In 1824-25 Revolutionary War hero the Marquis de Lafayette visited the United States in a grand triumphal tour. Lafayette had been invited by President James Monroe, who saw the tour as a way to kick-off revelries for America’s upcoming 50th anniversary. Throughout the 24 states Lafayette visited, he was met with huge crowds and celebratory dinners, including his time traveling through New Hampshire. French historian and geographer Julien Icher, who manages the Lafayette Trail Project for the French consulate general in Boston, will speak about his efforts to document Lafayette’s travels, focusing specifically on New Hampshire—the major landmarks he visited in the Granite State, the local people he knew from his service during the Revolutionary War, and the various plaques and memorials scattered across New Hampshire to honor his visit. Icher will also demonstrate a geographical web app that has allowed him to map Lafayette’s tour. This lecture is included in the price of admission. New Hampshire Historical Society members are admitted for free.
