Other Service Organizations
In 1958, Hampton men were among the organizers of Exeter-Hampton Lodge No. 2075, B.P.O. Elks. J. Walter Hollis of Hampton was the first Grand Exalted Ruler. A lodge was constructed the following year on Hampton Road in Exeter, but the organization apparently failed to attract enough members. After it closed in the 1970s, the lodge became business offices.
The Hampton Rotary Club was organized in 1969, with Dana Scot Huntington as the first president.
