Book Signing: Terry Nelson, author of Hidden History of the New Hampshire Seacoast

Signed books by local authors make great holiday gifts! Take advantage of this opportunity to meet author Terry Nelson and get signed copies of his new book, Hidden History of the New Hampshire Seacoast!


The New Hampshire Seacoast has a wealth of overlooked history. Some remnants are hidden in plain sight, and others are just plain hidden. Meet the minister and early religious founder who was involved in an armed confrontation in Dover with another preacher in 1640. Find out how a onetime high school assistant principal in Rochester became a world-famous business leader and ended up meeting President Grover Cleveland. Discover the story of "ghost" racetracks in Somersworth before they disappear, as well as the "pile of rocks" that stopped a multimillion-dollar building project in Windham. Author Terry Nelson reveals some of New England's most fascinating history, from Durham and Madbury to North Hampton and Portsmouth.


Terry Nelson was an educator for forty years. His last position before retiring was as an assistant principal for Southside Middle School in Manchester--the home of the Spartans. He is a member of the Manchester Historical Association; Woodman Museum, Dover, New Hampshire; New Hampshire Archeological Society; and the Council for British Archaeology. He and his wife, Barbara, live in Dover with their little dog, Ellie.
