Hampton Falls, Rockingham, NH

First established as a parish of Hampton, this town received its grant as an independent town in 1726 following a petition to the legislature. Located on the Taylor River, Hampton Falls provided water power for Weare's mills.
Meshech Weare, a descendant of the mill owners, was New Hampshire's first "president," later called "governor," in 1776. Hampton Falls was the birthplace of Ralph Adams Cram, a well-known architect, who designed the Cathedral of
St. John the Divine in New York and chapels at West Point and Exeter Academy.
