Atkinson, New Hampshire

The affluent town of Atkinson, New Hampshire sits on the Massachusetts border in southern Rockingham County.  Primarily a bedroom community for those who work in Massachusetts, Atkinson boasts many recreational activities as well as a proud history dating back before the American Revolution.  Home to many retirees, Atkinson offers several senior citizen programs, gently sloping walking and bicycling trails as well as the popular Atkinson Country Club.  Residents of this fine community enjoy the wonderful location and the down home charm that Atkinson, New Hampshire is so well known for.

Originally a part of the Massachusetts colony, Atkinson belonged to a land grant that was settled by mostly Scotch-Irish immigrants in the early 1720’s.  As nearby Londonderry’s population grew, immigrants seeking their own farmlands started moving to the north and west to areas dominated by Native Americans.  As the towns grew, the Native American “problems” became less and less of a concern and the new towns flourished.  Atkinson was named for Colonel Theodore Atkinson, owner of the granted land that would eventually become the town.  Though he never lived in the town itself, Colonel Atkinson served as secretary to the colony up to the revolution and, as brother-in-law to then-governor, Benning Wentworth, he received the honor of having the town named after him.  Atkinson was incorporated in 1767 and soon become known for the Atkinson Academy which became the first US co-educational academy when it began admitting girls to the school in 1791.

Being on the Massachusetts border gives Atkinson resident’s easy access to many large Massachusetts cities, such as Lawrence, Lowell and Boston itself, which lies less than an hour away.  But at the same time, Atkinson residents enjoy a close proximity to several large New Hampshire cities as well, including the state’s two largest cities, Nashua and Manchester.  The NH seacoast is a short thirty-minute drive east while the Lakes Region and the White Mountain National Forest is an hour or so to the north. 

Atkinson is a part of SAU#55 and students attend the Timberlane Regional School District along with student from Danville, Plaistow and Sandown.  Atkinson maintains the Atkinson Academy for grades one through five and sends students in grades six through eighth to Timberlane Middle School and student in grades nine through twelve to Timberlane High School.
