DescriptionThe American Independence Museum promotes awareness, increases understanding and celebrates the achievement of American Independence so as to recognize the many facets of the founding of our Nation, and to encourage and inspire civic engagement today.

What to Expect from Your Visit

•Learn the impact New Hampshire had on the founding of our country and how the leadership of New Hampshire’s men like John Stark, John Sullivan and Enoch Poor influenced events by studying the Museum’s exhibits about the Revolution.
•Be moved by the patriotic fervor of New Hampshire’s first copy of the Declaration of Independence.
•Appreciate the bravery of those soldiers striving for American independence (and the origins of recognizing our veterans) by standing just inches away from an original purple heart George Washington awarded during the War. This is one of only a few in the world that exists today!
•Understand the work of Nicholas Gilman, a Constitutional Convention member who lived in our Ladd-Gilman House, by studying his draft copy of the Constitution, complete with his handwritten notes in the margins.
