Marine Memorial

Photo - New Hampshire Marine Memorial at Hampton Beach

Hampton Beach is home to the New Hampshire Marine Memorial. It is located across Ocean Boulevard from the Ashworth by the Sea hotel. The inscription on the memorial reads, "In memorial of New Hampshire's heroic war dead... lost at sea in defence of our country." Artist Alice E. Cosgrove, who designed the statue, also selected words from a poem by John Gay for inscription on the base: "Breathe soft, ye winds, Ye waves in silence rest." The monument was dedicated on Memorial Day in 1957.
