Hampton GAR Hall
This is a wonderful old GAR Hall, now called the Civil War Memorial Hall, which was completed in 1889. There is a soldier on guard on top of the building. On the interior, there are 5 marble plaques with names of soldiers from the area. There are also 5 stained glass windows and emblems on the ceiling. It is kept closed but the janitor at the courthouse was very helpful and opened it up for me. It is located east of the Franklin County Courthouse. Photos taken 3/14/08 and 7/4/08.
