62. Breakfast Hill
located on the east side of Lafayette Road (US1) at the
Rye-North Hampton town line, North Hampton, NH

"On the hillside to be seen to the north of this location a band of marauding Indians and their captives were found eating their breakfast on June 26, 1696, following the attack at the Portsmouth Plains. When confronted by the milita the Indians made a hasty exit leaving the prisoners and plunder. This locality still enjoys the name of Breakfast Hill."
