The goal of this project is to get a landmark capture from every one of the 234 towns in New Hampshire. The landmark could be the town sign, town hall, or some other distinctive feature of the town (architectural or otherwise). This is an ongoing project, so make sure to check back and see what has been added.

Located in Gossville, N.H. Come on, you know where that is...
I can remember driving by this structure a long time ago. Back then, this 10-foot tall wooden horse was a little bit more eye-catching. This is because the owner at this time had surrounded this "trojan" horse with a bunch of little signs with the names of countries behind the Iron Curtain. There was another sign too; I don't remember what that one read but this page tells me that it read "Keep the U.N. out of the U.S.".

When you see a photo of a soldier look pastt the uniform and see the man, look at the name, and remember that we are not just statistics, we are not murderers, WE are your sons daughters, fathers, cousins, brothers, sisters, aunts uncles. Look past the headline past the flashy uniform, past the gun, and see the person.
While this photo was obviously not taken in New Hampshire or depicts anything New Hampshire, it is just as much a part of us all. This photo was taken by one of New Hampshire's own young men sent off to a far away place, to do other's bidding. Even though Spencer is far from home, he is still in our hearts and is part of our lives. Please visit Spencer's work, he is an incredible photographer documenting his life in Iraq in an everyday, observant manner.
Take Care Spencer!

"The Engineering Design and Analysis Laboratory was formed in 1965 as an interdisciplinary faculty group made up mainly of members of the College of Technology. The primary objectives are to give both faculty and qualified students experience in inventive engineering development where accomplishment is measured by actual results as much as it is by written reports. In the summer of 1966 the EDAL faculty undertook a study of different types of scientific sealabs, more properly known as Scientific Saturation Diving Facilities, for the U.S. Office of Naval Research. The "Edalhab" project began when the students decided to attempt building a model of the one their faculty were designing. The eight-by-ten foot Edalhab was launched on April 26, 1968 at Alton Bay, NH. Four student aquanauts spent 48 hours and six minutes living in the sea-laboratory they designed and built. "

captain ebenezer eastman must have been a hell of a guy.
Concord was founded around 1720, when Captain Ebenezer Eastman, originally of Haverhill, Massachusetts, arrived with a group of settlers. The initial plantation of Penacook was formed by a grant in 1725. In 1733, it was incorporated as the town of Rumford, and in 1765, the name was changed to Concord.

New Hampshire isn't only about its scenery, it is about its people. The people of New Hampshire are as solid as the mountains in the north and as forgiving as the changing of the seasons.
