Plan A Trip To Concord, One Of New Hampshire’s Most Charming Historic Towns

Concord was one of New Hampshire’s earliest settlements. Its earliest settlers arrived in the Merrimack River valley region in 1659. In 1725, the region was granted by Massachusetts as the Plantation of Penacook. Just a few short years later, in 1734, the area was incorporated as the town of Rumford. In 1765, the town was renamed Concord following a boundary dispute with the neighboring town of Bow. As the town grew, it became a notable site for granite quarrying and manufacturing. Its central location in the state led to its selection as the state capital in the early 19th century. Today, Concord is a vibrant city that boasts numerous cultural landmarks and historic sites where visitors can experience the region’s rich history.
