New exhibit at the Stone Building (Clerk’s Office)
Our new exhibit in the Stone Building celebrates new accessions, such as pictures of an 1876 Studebaker Chuckwagon, as well as some of our existing artifacts from Charles Philbrick’s Tin Shop and complimentary household items from the collection. Of special interest now is an 1850s roll of North Hampton voters.

The North Hampton Library is significant in education as the first purpose-built library building in the town of North Hampton. The Library represents the 19th-century trend of establishing free public libraries. The library is also an excellent example of the Tudor Revival style. It was designed by Boston architect, J. Lawrence Berry and built by well-known local craftsmen.
