Manning Banner - Prophecy for Hampton
Newly enlarged exhibit for 2024 opening

manning_airplane-icon1.png In the 1930s, Warren H. Manning, a well-known landscape architect, was hired by the town to draw up plans for the beautification, restoration, and advancement of Hampton Beach. It was called the Prophecy for Hampton. Its most visible component to the public was a large banner (12 feet wide) that was used to publicize the renovation proposal.

A newly enlarged exhibit in the main presentation area of the museum shows photos of this banner, and these website pages complement the exhibit with a more detailed view of the banner itself in high resolution, complete with labels. Click here for more info.
