Old postcard showing Lamie’s Tavern
Lafayette Road, Hampton, New Hampshire
Postmarked July 18, 1958
"Lamie’s Tavern by reason of its site and the building it occupies is woven directly into the colorful tapestry of the more than three centuries of New England history. Period architecture and decorations make the Tavern Dining rooms unusually attractive. The great hand-hewn beams, the wide pine paneling around the mammoth fireplace, and the wagon wheel lighting fixtures are all authentic. Featuring generous portions of wholesome New England cooked foods, Lamie’s Tavern is noted as a traditional stopping place for hungry New England travelers."
