On Thursday, October 10, at 7 PM at the Rochester Historical Society Museum on Hanson Street, Paul Smith, Clerk of the New Hampshire House of Representatives, will share stories from the 200 year history of the New Hampshire State House.
The first seat of New Hampshire’s government was in Portsmouth and then the Legislature moved from place to place for years before finding a permanent home in Concord. The granite building is now the oldest state capitol in which both houses of the Legislature meet in their original chambers. It is one of just five state houses to reach its bicentennial year. During its 200 years it has seen many interesting historic events.
Smith, Clerk of the New Hampshire House of Representatives since 2014, and former state representative, has received numerous awards including being honored as one of the state’s “40 under 40” by the Manchester Union Leader.
The program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will follow the meeting.
