|The North Hampton Town Hall in North Hampton, New Hampshire is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion A, Social History, and under Criterion C, Architecture. The Town Hall has been the center of local government and community activities for over one hundred and sixty years. It has housed town meetings, the selectmen's office, the town library, the town jail and provided storage for the fire department. It has also served as an important center of community activity. Despite modifications to accommodate the evolving role and needs of town government and the relocation of the building in the late 19th century to a site (a quarter of a mile away) more convenient to the all-important railroad, the building retains the essential features of its original design and is an example of transitional Federal-Greek Revival architecture. The North Hampton Town Hall displays integrity of location, design, setting, materials, workmanship, feeling and association. The period of significance for the property is 1844-1962, reflecting its original date of construction and the fifty-year cut-off of the National Register. The property is significant on the local level.
