Cemetery Celebrates 25 years of service
September 24, 2022 (10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.) - On Saturday, September 24th the NH State Veterans Cemetery will be celebrating 25 years of dedicated service to NH Veterans and families. We are proud of our mission to provide and maintain a dignified final-resting place to honor all veterans and eligible dependents which expresses the state's gratitude for their service to the country.
The New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery conveys peace through natural beauty and is a source of pride to veterans, their families, and all residents of New Hampshire.

Remembrance Station has a new name - Stories of Service
AUG 2021- In a recent decision by the NHVCA Board of Directors, the former "Remembrance Statrion" at the Veterans Heritage Learning Center has been renamed the "Stories of Service" Station. The Board members expressed that the new name was more indicative of the audience from which we are looking to capture service information. While information about those who are buried at the cemetery is still desired when families can provide it, we are also seeking information from those NH veterans and service members still actively serving who wish to supply their service history and stories. We believe this will make for a much more robust and informative exhibit for visitor research as well as a more personal way to remember those who served.

Our new sign
The VHLC now has a new sign installed just at the entryway sidewalk. Many thanks to Mike Horne and Mike Rice for getting this installed.
12-NOV-2020: New Sign is coming...
We have our signage created and will some be installing the posts for the new Learning Center sign. The design will be very similar to the current signage around the cemetery to blend with the current design of the grounds.
11-NOV-2020: Teachers Workshop
Due to COVID restrictions, we had to cancel our planned workshop for April 2020. However, we are still planning for a rescheduled workshop for Fall of 2021. This will be a one day seminar, onsite here. Teachers will be able to earn CEU's for their continual accreditation and we plan to have a guest speaker to talk about curriculum development in concert with using the the Veterans Heritage Learning Center and cemetery grounds for a Social Studies/History teaching destination. We will be posting more information here as we solidify date, plans, etc.
AR Coming to VHLC
29-JULY-2020: The NH Veterans Cemetery Association has partnered with Lingar Inc. to develop an "augmented reality" experience for the cemetery grounds. This technology will allow visitors to use their smart phone or tablet to scan targeted items, such as monuments, are the cemetery and access information about that monument. This technology provides a means of a "self-guided" tour experience that will provide a variety of historical information on the 20 Points of History, the Memorial Walkway and other areas in the future. Development of these "tours" is currently underway and will be announced at a later date when the system has been tested. We are excited to bring this latest technology to the cemetery to assist in the educational mission of our Veterans Heritage Learning Center.
