We live in one of the most beautiful and prosperous places on Earth. To the east the Atlantic Ocean with beaches for surfing and relaxing to mountains in the north for hiking and snowboarding.  In between there are many lakes for summer swimming and winter ice skating. 

The people and culture of the region are predominantly European in origin with the state itself named after the English county of Hampshire.  Politics, sport, education and the arts are all well-supported.

The township of Bow

The town of Bow is a rural residential community of approximately 7500 residents. Located within a 5 minute drive from the state capitol of New Hampshire, Concord, and a 1.5 hour drive from Boston, Massachusetts.The town's name comes from its establishment along a bend, or "bow", in the Merrimack River. The first census, taken in 1790, reported 568 residents. In 2000 a census determined that there were 2,045 living in the township.

The City of Concord, NH

Originally inhabited by Abenaki Native Americans, called the Pennacook, alongside the Merrimack River, the city was named "Concord" in 1765 after a dispute between the two areas of Bow and Rumford.

Concord's central geographical location made it a logical choice for the state capital, particularly after a canal and lock system was opened in 1807 to allow vessels passage around the Amoskeag Falls downriver, connecting Concord with Boston.

Concord, as with much of New England, is within the humid continental climate zone, with long, cold, snowy winters, very warm (and at times humid) summers, and relatively brief autumns and springs. In winter, successive storms deliver light to moderate snowfall amounts, contributing to the relatively reliable snow cover.

The State of New Hampshire

It is known internationally for the New Hampshire primary, the first primary in the U.S. presidential election cycle. While Concord is the state capital, Manchester is the largest city in the state. It has no general sales tax, nor is personal income taxed.

Located in the north-eastern area of the United States, in a group of states known as New England. It is bordered by Massachusetts to the south, Vermont to the west, Maine and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, and the Canadian province of Quebec to the north. New Hampshire is the 5th smallest and the 9th least populous of the 50 U.S. states.

The United States of America

New Hampshire became the first of the British North American colonies to break away from Great Britain in January 1776, and six months later was one of the original thirteen states that founded the United States of America.

The United States is the world's oldest surviving federation. It is a constitutional republic and representative democracy, "in which majority rule is tempered by minority rights protected by law". The government is regulated by a system of checks and balances defined by the U.S. Constitution, which serves as the country's supreme legal document.
