Rich History

Hampton was founded in 1786. The majority of the residents in this town were farmers, tradesmen, merchants, teachers, lawyers, pastors, and doctors. Paralell to the Little River, there were mills making cider, shingles, cotton, and factories that made pins, buttons, rakes, spectacles, hats, and spoons. Single-room schools were made for the children and inns for travelers. The ponds of Hampton were used to supply ice to everyone that owned an ice house in the cold winter days.

The Employment

The income per capita in Hampton is 37% higher than the national average and The median household income is 89% higher than the national average!

The Schools

Hampton Elementary School was built in 1991 and it provides a nurturing learning environment since the classes are a bit smaller. The Pro is that this gives each student an advantage to flourish, not only during school hours, but beyond. Parish Hill Middle/High School educates Hampton students from 7th-12th grades.
