The white steepled church is a basic part of the New England landscape. Dare I say it, but every town has one. When you drive around, you see the next town off in the distance based upon the white steeple. Welcome to New England. 🙂
This lovely church was built in the early 1800’s. Off on the left side of the church, there is also a little cemetery from that era as well that includes the resting places of the original founders of this church.
It is located in Hampton Falls on a lovely village green that also has a bandstand, which is another staple of the New England landscape.
During the summer months, there are regularly scheduled concerts at the bandstand. Part of the entertainment is also the sale of refreshments by local organizations – hot dogs, chips, beans, drinks, popcorn, ice cream and desserts. Beans? It’s New England folks, you’ll find beans on the breakfast menu. 🙂
A lovely white steepled church with strong black doors and a bandstand on a meticulously maintained village green reflects a community that takes pride in its history as well as its future. Hampton Falls welcomes you to stop on by.
