    Door, Hampstead NH Meetinghouse The meetinghouse at Hampstead, New Hampshire now serves as a community center. The interior has been substantially modernized, and a floor has been added at the former balcony level. However, the exterior is kept in its original style, and is well maintained by the town. It is also one of the oldest surviving meetinghouses. It was built in 1745, although the interior was not completed until 1792. The belfry boasts an original Paul Revere bell.
