As one of the thirteen original American colonies, it only makes sense that New Hampshire has many stories to tell. In fact, it was the first colony to declare its freedom from England – a full half a year before the Declaration of Independence was even signed. New Hampshire was home to the first planting of potatoes in the United States, the first free public library, and the adoption of the first legal lottery, as well.
