Paul Timmerman, a resident of Dover, NH, will discuss the life and times of John Stark and his vital contributions to the war effort during the American Revolution. John Stark (1728 – 1822) was a New Hampshire native, born in Londonderry, who served as an officer in the British Army during the French and Indian war and a major general in the Continental Army during the American Revolution. He became widely known as the "Hero of Bennington" for his exemplary service at the Battle of Bennington in 1777. Timmerman, states that, “John Stark, although not well known outside of New Hampshire, had a significant influence on the outcome of the Revolutionary War.” Timmerman is the Chairman of the Woodman Museum and docent. He is an avid historian, Revolutionary war reenactor with the 1st NH Regiment and Civil War reenactor with the 1st NH Light Artillery.

Every four years, Manchester is visited by numerous presidential candidates, campaigning in the New Hampshire Primary.  This year, the Millyard Museum is showcasing a chronological history of this process through images of candidates through the years as they engaged with Manchester voters in their homes, on the streets and in the many iconic watering holes that are the lifeblood of so many campaigns.

Whether you are a Democrat, Republican or Independent, you're certain to see some of your favorite candidates - Kennedy, Nixon, Carter, Reagan, Clinton, Bush, Obama - as they meet with your friends and neighbors in their quest to win election to our nation's highest office. We believe Manchester is the crucible of the Presidential Primary process in New Hampshire, and with this exhibit, we demonstrate our pivotal role in American political history.

Thank you to our Exhibit Sponsor!

artist exhibit graphicJoin us for the opening of an exciting new exhibit and learn about both the history and future of Manchester's ponds.

Although ponds may not be the first thing one thinks about in Manchester, the Queen City has several ponds that have played an important role in the area’s history.  More recently, the Manchester Urban Ponds Restoration Program, established in 2000, has led cleanup efforts to help return the city’s ponds to their historic uses. This exhibit looks at the history of several of Manchester’s urban ponds, including Crystal Lake, Dorrs Pond, Maxwell Pond, Nutts Pond, Pine Island Pond, and Stevens Pond and celebrates the accomplishments of the Urban Ponds Restoration Program over the last 20 years.
