Thompson Hall, University of New Hampshire
Thompson Hall was first built in 1893 on land donated by Benjamin Thompson. It was the first home of the University of New Hampshire. We rested for the night in Durham, NH and had our dinner in one of the sushi cafes on campus. The campus is great which brought back my own school memories. The next day, we explored a little bit of UNH campus.
