The geographic center of New Hampshire lies in Belknap County, 3 miles east of Ashland.  At 6,288 feet, Mount Washington, part of the White Mountain Range in the White Mountain National Forest, is the state's highest point, and the highest peak in the Northeast.  New Hampshire was named in 1629 by Captain John Mason of Plymouth Council for his home county in England.  

 

Brief History:  Algonquian-speaking peoples, including the Pennacook, lived n the region when the Europeans arrived.  The first explorers in the area were England's Martin Pring in 1603 and France's Champlain in 1605.  The first settlement was established at Odiorne's Point (now the port of Rye).  Native American conflicts were ended in 1759 by Robert Rogers' Rangers.  Before the American Revolution, New Hampshire residents seized a British fort at Portsmouth. 1774. and drove out the royal governor.  New Hampshire was the first colony to adopt its own constitution, in 1776.  Three regiments served in the Continental Army, and scores of privateers raided British shipping.
