Did you know there’s a “Presidential Range” of mountains located in New Hampshire? Or that both the first and current Presidents visited Portsmouth – and ate at Strawbery Banke? That New Hampshire produced just one native born son who grew up to be President, while shaping Presidential politics through the New Hampshire Primary every four years since 1952. You have a New Hampshire farmer to thank for suggesting that one man/one vote was the way democracy should work – not through king-makers in a smoke-filled back room. Talk about a Mr. Deeds-Norman Rockwell moment!
Here are five Presidential “peaks” (some literal, some by association) you might consider, even after Presidents’ Day Weekend has passed.
1. The Presidential Range

4. Lincoln visits Exeter, Concord, Manchester, Dover
5. New Hampshire’s President, Franklin Pierce
