About this Location

Recognizing economic, recreational, historic and scientific values conservation-minded citizens and organizations since 1957 have worked to create interest in conserving a part Hampton’s natural resources, its salt marshes.

At the 1962 Town Meeting, it was voted to establish a committee of seven conservation-minded citizens to study about acquiring “a portion (350 acres or more) of Hampton marshland, east of US-1, to be preserved forever in its natural state for wildlife and conservation purposes, under the protection of the U.S. Dept. of Interior (Fish and Game Wildlife Service) or similar state agencies.”
