First granted to several Ipswich, Massachusetts residents in 1735, the parcel of land was unnamed until the first real settlement in 1738. Originally incorporated in 1762 as Ipswich, New Hampshire (in honor of the settler's origins), Governor Benning Wentworth renamed in the town New Ipswich to avoid any possible confusion between the this town and the Ipswich in Massachusetts. With the Souhegan River in such close proximity, mills quickly sprung up along its banks including the state's first wool and cotton mills. Glass, potash and linseed oil production soon followed, only to be outshined by early cabinetmakers whose furniture rapidly became known far and wide for its unerring quality. Today the town's largest company, Warwick Mills, Inc., manufactures specialty fabrics found in countless applications from firefighting and police work to protective airbags used by NASA.
