The FSP is an organization whose mission is “to develop, revitalize, maintain and protect the heritage and recreational use of Stark Park as an historic asset of the City of Manchester and will continue their work of restoring Stark Park to its former glory".
General John Stark Park is named in honor of New Hampshire’s own hero, General John Stark. John Stark is the man who famously said "Live Free Or Die; Death Is Not The Worst of Evils." which lead to our State motto (in 1945). For the Brethren, it should also be noted that John Stark was a Freemason and one of George Washington's Generals during the Revolutionary War.
