63. Atlantic Cable Station and Sunken Forest
located on the east side of NH 1A
at Jenness Beach in Rye, NH

good luck, I've never been able to find the stumps or the cable "The receiving station for the first Atlantic cable, laid in 1874, is located on old beach road opposite this location. The remains of the sunken forest (remnants of the Ice Age) may be seen at low tide. Intermingled with these gnarled stumps is the original Atlantic cable."
