Al’s Seafood
51 Lafayette Rd, North Hampton, NH 03862

Our restaurant is casual seafood in a warm New England setting. Dine in or take out. Or prepare your own meal at home with seafood from our market. Twenty years ago, Al Courchene purchased a small seafood market and take-out stand and began delighting seafood lovers with high quality seafood at attractive prices. As the clientele grew, so did the premises. Outdoor picnic areas were outgrown and the new indoor dining area was added in 2004. Since that time Al’s Seafood has become not just a summertime destination but a year-round favorite.

The Lady of the Sea: NH Marine Memorial
Ocean Blvd, Hampton, NH 03842
,

“Breathe soft, ye winds, Ye waves in silence rest.” Under former Governor Hugh Gregg, the commission chose the plot of ground at Hampton Beach across from the Ashworth Hotel to locate the memorial. Various designs for the Memorial were submitted and finally a design by Alice E. Cosgrove [1909-1971], a talented artist from Concord NH, was chosen. Her design was accepted unanimously after the commission members had viewed the other entries. She made a scale model which was used by a Cambridge, Massachusetts sculptor, Teodors Uzarins, to model a life-size statue in clay at the Caproni Galleries in Boston. Uzarins, working closely with Alice produced the sensitive face and feeling now immortalized in NH granite which you see today. The monument, Lady of the Sea, was completed and dedicated on Memorial Day, May 30, 1957.
