American Independence Museum  Just Announced!
Join us as we head to Exeter for a tour of the American Independence Museum followed by lunch at The Lobster Boat Restaurant.
On the guided tour:

  • Learn the impact New Hampshire had on the founding of our country and how the leadership of New Hampshire’s men like John Stark, John Sullivan and Enoch Poor influenced events by studying the Museum’s exhibits about the Revolution.
  • Be moved by the patriotic fervor of New Hampshire’s first copy of the Declaration of Independence.
  • Appreciate the bravery of those soldiers striving for American independence (and the origins of recognizing our veterans) by standing just inches away from an original purple heart George Washington awarded during the War. This is one of only a few in the world that exists today!
  • Understand the work of Nicholas Gilman, a Constitutional Convention member who lived in our Ladd-Gilman House, by studying his draft copy of the Constitution, complete with his handwritten notes in the margins.
  • Note to Visitors: The Ladd-Gilman House is an almost 300 years old National Historic Landmark.  The building is not easily accessible to those in wheelchairs or using walkers.  There are several small doorways as well as steps leading into  and out of the museum.  Please call (603)772-2622 for more information or any questions you might have about accessibility.
