Concord, New Hampshire

The Capitol in New Hampshire was very quiet the day we visited.  We started our self-guided tour in the Hall of Flags.  This building was constructed of granite quarried in Penacook, NH.  It opened in 1819.  Stuart Park was the architect.  There are more than 200 paintings throughout the building.  Their subjects vary.  Our favorite was a large painting of Pickett’s charge during the Civil War at Gettysburg.  There are 400 members in the House of Representatives. The largest in the 50 states.   They sit in stadium seating and receive only $200 plus mileage for a two year term. So basically they along with the Senate volunteer their time.  There are only 24 Senators, which is the 4th smallest of states law making bodies.  The House and the Senate both still use their original chambers.  We  also went to The New Hampshire History Museum using our Cog Train ticket.  We visited a wigwam, a parlor, a stage coach, the Civil War, a fire tower and worked in a store from the 1900’s.  We enjoyed this small capital city while we stayed at Blake’s Brook in Epsom, NH.

    Sounds like a great time!
    They other states along with our US representatives and senators should take a lesson about compensation from NH.
