Freedom Historical Society presents “Cruising New Hampshire History: A Guide to New Hampshire’s Roadside Historical Markers” on Wednesday, May 15

Author Michael Bruno will discuss his book “Cruising New Hampshire History: A Guide to New Hampshire’s Roadside Historical Markers” at the Freedom Town Hall at 7 PM on Elm Street.

Historical Markers dot the New Hampshire landscape.  Michael will explain how we can all learn the unique history of New Hampshire through markers along the highways of the Granite State.  The New Hampshire roadside historical markers commemorate significant events and individuals from the first settlers arriving in 1623 to notable individuals who helped define what New Hampshire is today.  For some history fans, finding them, documenting them and sharing them with others is an obsession.  Michael explores the 255 New Hampshire historical markers that dot the state highways and roads.  Each marker is described with its location (to include GPS coordinates), date installed, marker inscription, and expanded historical references of this event/individual.  Information may also be provided about other points of interest in the vicinity of the historical marker.

Michael was born and raised in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire.  After serving in the U.S. Army for more than 23 years, he returned to New Hampshire in 2009.  He has been a JROTC Army Instructor at White Mountains Regional High School in Whitefield since his military retirement.  Michael attained an Educational Specialist degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA.  He resides in the historic mountain community of Bethlehem where he is actively involved in town government.  Michael has also been featured on NH Chronicle and WCVB Boston Chronicle.  He will have copies of his books available for sale and signing at the event.

The presentation is free and open to all wishing to attend.  Refreshments will be served following the presentation.  Please join us as this will be a fun night!  For additional information, please call 603-539-5799.
