Long Description:
Text of Marker:

Bound Rock
This rock, originally in the middle of the Hampton
River, indicated the start of the boundary line surveyed by Captain Nicholas Shapely and marked
by him "AD 1657-HB and SH" to determine the
line between Hampton and Salisbury, HB
meaning Hampton Bound and SH, Shapely's mark.
Lost for many decades due to the shifting of
the river's mouth, the original course of the
river and the Bound Rock were rediscovered
in 1937. This historically important boulder,
still serving as the boundary marker, was
enclosed by the State of New Hampshire that
same year.
