The Historic New Hampshire Grave Site That Not Enough People Visit

New Hampshire’s history is full of interesting people and places. You can see living history in the form of forests and parks that dot the landscape. But, today we’re remembering a New Hampshire woman who we lost far too young. She was laid to rest here in the Granite State and we’d like to take a moment to remember her.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Christa McAuliffe was truly a pioneer. And she understood the importance of education. She had a vision and worked hard to make that vision a reality through her teaching, her message and her efforts to become the first teacher in space. You can visit her grave at Calvary Cemetery. When you do, take a moment to consider her bravery.
