Manchester, New Hampshire

Manchester, New Hampshire is the largest city in the entire northern New England region, which includes Vermont, Maine, and New Hampshire itself.  Set on the banks of the Merrimack River, Manchester is located in southern/central New Hampshire and is convenient to the mountains, the seacoast and countless Massachusetts towns and cities.  Manchester is a bustling industrial and commercial city, yet manages to maintain areas of natural beauty and quiet, private residential areas.  Many Manchester residents live and work in the city, eliminating the need for long and tiring commutes while instilling a strong sense of community in their neighborhoods.  Voted "Number One Small City in the East" by Money magazine in 1998, Manchester continues to strive for a "hometown" feel while maintaining the commercial and industrial strength that has made this large city one of New England's favorite destinations.

The area that was to become Manchester, NH was first called "Namoskeag" (meaning good fishing place) by the Pennacook Indians.  In 1722 John Goffe (for whom Goffstown was named), settled in the area and built a sawmill.  The resulting community that developed was referred to as "Old Harry's Town" and in 1735 the village was granted as "Tyngstown" to settlers from Massachusetts.  Ten years after the separation of New Hampshire from Massachusetts in 1741, Governor Benning Wentworth chartered the town as "Derryfield".  A mill town to the core, Derryfield's location on the Merrimack River proved to be its most beneficial quality.  Transporting goods via river, then eventually steam engine then truck helped build Derryfield into the economic powerhouse it is today.  The town was renamed Manchester in 1810 and was finally incorporated as a city in 1846. 

This New Hampshire city of about 110,000 people wants for nothing.  Anything you could desire can be found at Manchester's countless shops, stores, malls and outlets.  Anything you could want to do can be found within the city limits.  Museums, bowling, dancing, restaurants, fine art, skating, fishing, opera, higher learning, hiking, historic tours, bicycling, parachuting - you name it, Manchester's got it.  If you're of the mind to travel, the Manchester Airport can take you just about anywhere and if it can't, nearby Logan Airport in Boston, Massachusetts can.  New Hampshire's entertaining seacoast is a mere forty-five minutes to the east and its breathtaking mountains vistas only an hour north.  Manchester's own Verizon Wireless Arena offers a wide variety of entertainment from sporting events to musical performances to Hot Rod car shows.  Manchester, NH has it all and it's just waiting here for you.

The Manchester School District falls under School Administrative Unit #37 and maintains all its own schools.  Manchester has fourteen elementary schools, four middle schools and three high schools with a total enrollment of about 18,000 children.  Several small surrounding towns tuition their middle and high school students at Manchester's middle and high schools due to their small populations.
