A place to research, learn and honor those New Hampshire heroes who's sacrifice assured our nation's freedom...
Welcome to the Veterans Heritage Learning Center
We are a non-profit run facility built and opened in 2017 fo the purpose of providing a multimedia environment to learn about New Hampshire veterans, their families, and the long heritage of service to our nation from the 1600s to present day.
We welcome teachers, students, and all members of the public to come and visit to see our exhibits and interactives that we hope will engage you and help to open the door to encourage research, learning about New Hampshire's heroes and visit the grounds where so many are interred.
To expand on what's provided in the Learning Center, we offer the 20 Points of History which surround the Circle of Flags and the ceremonial area of the cemetery. Each obelisk contains a plate highlighting milestones in various periods of New Hampshire's military history. We also offer the Memorial Walkway, behind and adjacent to the Learning Center. A pathway of bricks and pavers, etched with the names of veterans meander through a serene natural setting of woods where over 75 monuments reside providing a lasting tribute to the men and women from all walks of life who served our nation honorably and with great distinction.
Learning Center Theater Area - Authentic Footlocker seating for approximately 24 people
A Unique Student Experience...
We offer an open space of learning that provides a historical perspective not seen in other historical sites. We have specifically developed our center and entire cemetery as an area of learning. On some days, depending on scheduling, they may even witness a military burial service. We typically will ask permission of the family before hand and students generally observe in silence from a respectful distance.
This is a different kind of learning space. The Learning Center provides a theater, interactives, and a historical timeline of NH military history from the late 1600s to present day.
Our Memorial Walkway holds over 75 monuments reflecting the various services and groups who served out state and nation.
