The Hampstead Meetinghouse, also once known as Hampstead Town Hall, is a historic meeting house. The core of this dual-purpose (religious and civic) structure was begun in 1749, although its interior was not completely finished until about 1768. It is one of a number of fairly well-preserved 18th-century meeting houses in southeastern New Hampshire, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.  There is a Paul Revere Jr. bell in the belfry. (Source: National Register of Historic Places)
