Celebrating Community Spirit

From its founding in 1876 through the late 1940’s, Centennial Hall played a vital role in the cultural enrichment and education of North Hampton’s citizens. Today, while awaiting the completion of restoration, the building remains in active use as a center for the arts, club meeting place and host to many groups and charitable organizations.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in May, 2016, the building operations and restoration is managed by The Friends of Centennial Hall, Inc., a New Hampshire registered 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization.

Centennial Hall continues its legacy of service to the community adapting to a variety of needs and uses. Currently home to six tenants, the Hall is also host to many town events and non-profit organizations. Reasonably priced private function rental is also offered.

With so few of these special buildings left, especially ones that continue to vibrantly serve the community, the building’s survival depends on donor support.


Just like in 1876, Centennial Hall is run by a small group of volunteers who responsibly manage all operations, maintenance and most importantly restoration and renovation of this important community resource. And while we’re working to increase the accessibility of underutilized space, we need your help to continue this work.

Your tax-deductible donation will be 100% applied to the restoration of Centennial Hall. And contact us to let us know how you can share your time, talents, and resources to reach our goal of a fully restored Hall for the greater Seacoast Community to enjoy.
