This is the first gazetteer ever published for the State of New Hampshire (1817) and a wonderful resource for researchers because it identifies many places by names which have otherwise been lost to history. Its three parts offer "A comprehensive Geographical and Statistical view of the whole State," "A description of each county, town, or location in the State; also of its lakes, rivers, ponds, and mountains," and "Topographical and Statistical Tables."

In addition to a detailed history and physical description of each place, this very early work identifies many of the earliest settlers of the State with a strong focus on churches and their early ministers. The descriptions also include a recital of the early populations, educational institutions and industries. Sprinkled throughout are a number of anecdotes of harrowing encounters between the new settlers and the native American Indians.
Note: This book is also among the 10 volumes in our popular Compendium of New England Gazetteers, which is available at 66% OFF the regular retail price of the individual books if purchased separately.
The final section of the book provides tables of the course and distance between towns, a count of horses, cattle, and sheep by town, and other interesting statistics.

This very rare book paints a fascinating picture of the 18-century New England frontier.
