John Clayton

Excellent presentation last night by Manchester Historic Association’s Executive Director John Clayton. Totally ad lib and fielding NH topics from the audience, he spoke at length on each subject, often with an unknown backstory. At the end of his presentation he was given a copy of “Hooksett Historical Sketches” written by long-time Hooksett Town Clerk Charles Hardy. Mr. Clayton certainly is a fountain of NH knowledge and Manchester in particular. Thank you to Mr. Clayton for the presentation
