Marker recognizes New Hampshire historic site

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire is recognizing a site where a town got its start nearly 300 years ago with a historic marker.

The state’s Division of Historical Resources announced Friday that a New Hampshire Historical Highway Marker has been installed on Route 156 in Nottingham, the site of Nottingham Square.

The town was created in 1722 and a plan for the town created two years later. At the time, the design for Nottingham Square was laid out with homes and streets. The town’s first school, blockhouse and meetinghouse were built on this summit. Nottingham Square also was the site for militia drills in 1775 and homes to four Revolutionary War generals.

This is the 259th marker installed in the state. An interactive map of the all the markers can be found on the division’s website. .
