New Hampshire History


In pre-Columbian times, what was to become present-day New Hampshire was inhabited by various Algonquian tribes.

The first Europeans reached the area at the beginning of the 17th century, and began to settle in 1623. By 1631, European settlements had been established at Dover, Durham and Stratham.

When the American Revolution began, New Hampshire was the first state to declare its independence. Only one battle was fought in the state; the raid on Fort William and Mary, which is widely regarded as the first battle of the Revolutionary War.

By the mid 19th century, the state was industrializing, and many textiles mills were established in the state. These new industries attracted many new immigrants from Quebec and Ireland.

In the 20th century, the textile industry has gone into decline, but the state has rebounded as a center of high technology and service industries. New Hampshire has also become known as the site of the New Hampshire Presidential primary, which is the first presidential election primary in the United States, and gives an early indication of the popularity of the candidates.
