This allows for elbow room simply not found in most areas of the country.

But if you enjoy wide open spaces, privacy and being unable to even see your nearest neighbor’s home, you might consider making Hill your new home town.
Hill was first known as New Chester, NH, so-named in 1753. The town was incorporated as such in 1778, but the residents balked at this “overly-common” town name and the town was eventually renamed “Hill”, in 1837, after Isaac Hill, a three-year governor of New Hampshire. Hill was basically a farming community for most of its existence until, in the early 1930’s, Hill residents were informed that due to the new Franklin Falls Dam Project, there town was soon going to be part of a flood plain, or worse of a flood plain than it already was. Over the next ten years the town was relocated high upon a hill and the old town area was shut down to traffic and all but deserted. You can still walk some of the old, abandoned streets and see the forgotten cellars, signs and sidewalks of a time long since passed.
Today, Hill is a bedroom community primarily comprised of residents who work in nearby Concord, only about a half-hour south. There are several other towns in the vicinity, larger than Hill, but much smaller than a city, which provide Hill residents with all their shopping and entertainment needs, however, most Hill residents enjoy the entertainment provided by the great outdoors.
