Originally granted to soldiers returning from the first war with Canada, the area that would become Lyndeborough, NH was first known as Salem-Canada when chartered by Massachusetts in 1735. When New Hampshire's new provincial government came into existence in 1763, a part of Salem-Canada was regranted to Benjamin Lynde, a former Massachusetts chief justice. The town was officially incorporated in 1764 and renamed Lyndeborough in honor of its grant holder. The lack of waterpower in the small town prohibited most industry, however in 1866 the Lyndeborough Glass Company opened its doors for a twenty-year run of high-quality glass manufacturing. Known for its light blue/green color, bottles and other glass items manufactured in the late 1800's are highly sought-after by today's glass collectors. The quartz needed for this manufacturing process was mined locally in Lyndeborough and the original quarry is still used today.
