Tricentennial Steering Committee

In 2011 the Town voted to establish a committee to celebrate our 300th Anniversity. Several citizens stepped forward and recorded oral histories (available at the library). In 2015 a Tricentennial Steering Committee was formed to create and support community activities leading up to the big celebration in 2022.


Members of the committee: Betsy Dexter,secretary; David French, Ann Haggart, co-chair; Judy Haskell, co-chair; Angelo Montrone; Dale Ohsberg; Donna Onacki, treasurer; Todd Wagner.


In addition, volunteers from the community are forming subcommittees to work on specific projects. More volunteers are always welcome.

David French

World traveler David French settled in Hampton Falls 24 years ago in what is referred to as Dr. Bailey's house.

David is an active volunteer who loves history, so it is only natural that becoming a member of the Tricentennial Steering Committee is on his docket.


David loves the open spaces and the opportunity for citizens to participate in civic affairs.
