Boscawen NH: All Around Boscawen

Boscawen NH is a quiet little town nestled in between Penacook NH and Franklin NH.  It is located in Merrimack County and has a population of about 4,000.


On April 22, 1760, Contoocook Plantation was officially named a town by Governor Wentworth.  The town was named after Lord Edward Boscawen who as a British Admiral involved with the 1758 Siege of Louisburg.


Boscawen NH was an abundant town.  The town was pretty level so it made for great farm land and became well known for its apple, pear and cherry orchards.  And because Boscawen NH was surrounded by the Merrimack River and Contoocook River, it was the perfect source of water power for local mills.  At the time, industries included a cotton mill, a wool factory, nine saw mills, a grist mill, a saw maker, a chair factory and a match factory.


In 1846, the Northern Railroad was built thorough Boscawen.  Also that same year, the local postmaster became the only one of several in the country to issue postage stamps.  The public library was built in 1915 by Boston architect Guy Lowell.


Now that you have a brief history of Boscawen New Hampshire, let me tell you some of the great things this town has to offer.


When most people hear the word Boscawen, they automatically think of the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery.  The NH State Veterans Cemetery is one of 43 state veterans cemeteries and 135 national veterans cemeteries located throughout the U.S.  The 104-acre cemetery was established in 1997 in the town of Boscawen, NH.  The cemetery provides the final resting place for NH men and women who have served in the Armed Forces.  The cemetery has an historical walk where you can visit the monuments that feature information on a significant event of interest in the state’s 320-year military history.
