Hampton, New Hampshire

The beautiful beachside resort town of Hampton, New Hampshire is a hot vacation spot for thousands of people every year.  Visitors literally come from all over the globe to enjoy the sun and sand of Hampton Beach.  The town itself is basically split into two sections, the town proper and the coastline, separated by marshland but connected with several bridged roads.  The coastal area is lined with cottages, hotels, marinas, sandy beaches, restaurants, bars, video arcades and retail outlets selling swimsuits, surfboards and sunglasses.  “Cruising the boulevard” is a popular pastime for teens during the hot summer months, lending to a constant stream of vehicles winding around Route 1A.

Originally called “Winnacunnet”, the Indian name for “pleasant pines”, Hampton was one of the first of four towns established in New Hampshire by the colonial Massachusetts government.  At the time, the area included the towns of North Hampton, Hampton Falls, South Hampton, Seabrook, Kensington, East Kingston, Kinston, Sandown and Danville, but has since decreased greatly in size.  Hampton was so-named for the English village that Hampton’s founder, Reverend Stephen Bachiler, used to preach in before coming to Boston in 1632.  Six years later, when he was an amazing 76 years old, the reverend petitioned for and was granted an area in “Winnacunnet” for he and his followers to settle.  The township of Hampton was born one year later.

The construction of a railroad through the town created a new face for Hampton: one of an oceanfront beach resort.  People by the thousands flocked to the pristine beaches and business followed.  Soon, Hampton was known across the nation as New England’s premier vacation resort and is still seen as such today.  Hampton’s 16,000 residents enjoy the tourism their town brings in and know also how to avoid the traffic it generates by using side streets and back roads.  Hampton has several large businesses in town, the largest of which have nothing to do with the seaside aspects of the town.  These include auto parts manufacturing, software companies, communications, machining, medical devices and more.  In Hampton there’s always something to do, even if you don’t like the beach.  Fine dining, theaters, museums, shopping – it’s all here in Hampton.  There’s easy access to I-95 meaning points north and south are easily reached.  The same goes for east/west travel with Route 101 leading from the beach all the way to Manchester.  Beach or no beach, Hampton is a great place to live.

Hampton is a part of School Administrative Unit #21 along with Hampton Falls, Seabrook and North Hampton.  Hampton operates its own schools for preschool children up to grade eight and Hampton’s high school age children attend Winnacunnet High School, part of the Winnacunnet Cooperative.
