It’s no secret that our region is full of history and one historic landmark right down in Charlestown has made it on a list of places to see in NH. OnlyInYourState.com posted a list on Tuesday chronicling the “10 Places in New Hampshire That You Must See Before You Die”, boasting that the 10 places are “so uniquely New Hampshire that everyone must visit them”. Charlestown’s Fort at No. 4 made the list at the #9 spot right behind #8’s New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon.
The list explains that Fort at No. 4 is impressive any time, but is especially neat during war reenactments, which occur regularly at the reconstructed colonial fort.
The original fort was involved in both King George’s War and the French and Indian War, and although it fell into disrepair, it was rebuilt and turned into a living history museum in the 1960s.
In case you were wondering, taking the top spots on the online list are the Mount Washington Summit at #2 for obvious reasons and the Isle of Shoals on the coast is advertised as the #1 place you should visit in New Hampshire in your lifetime.
