About Historic Hampton
Hampton enjoys the benefits of a small town atmosphere, is where history has a future and offers much to residents and visitors alike. Established in 1873, the city is one of tradition and history, while embracing change. The old cotton mill was converted into lofts; former stores on Cherry Street are now townhouses; the old jail is a booming brewery. Beautiful antebellum historic homes and old oak trees line the streets of Hampton.
Hampton prides itself on being designated as a “Tree City” and a “Bird Sanctuary” city. In 2012, Hampton also achieved the status of “Playful City” – one of 213 communities in the United States to be so designated. In 2013, Hampton was one of 217 cities designated as a “Playful City”—the only city in Henry County to achieve this designation. Playful City means we encourage youngsters to participate actively, not passively.
