The Granite State was one of the 13 colonies that rebelled against British rule in 1765. The only revolutionary battle fought here was the 1774 raid on Fort William and Mary. Valuable quantities of gunpowder, small arms, and cannon were seized in the assault. New Hampshire became the ninth state to join the union on June 21, 1788.
Located in the Northeast, the state is bordered by Canada, Vermont, Maine, Massachusetts, and the Atlantic Ocean. Because five of New England's greatest streams originate here, the state is often called the Mother of Rivers. New Hampshire is also home to about 1,300 lakes and ponds. At 6,288 feet, Mount Washington is the highest point. The weather station there has recorded some of the coldest temperatures in the continental U.S.
Although summers are short and winters can be long, New Hampshire enjoys four distinct seasons. Fall is its most colorful. Outdoor recreation has become a major economic driver. With some of the largest mountains on the East Coast, hiking, skiing, and snowmobiling attract tourists. The state still has an agricultural and industrial base. Products include apples, eggs, rubber, and plastic.
New Hampshire has a strong university system and is home to Dartmouth College. The state has nurtured poets, astronauts, comedians, actors, and statesmen. Robert Frost, Horace Greeley, Daniel Webster, and Alan Shepard are a few of its famous natives. The New Hampshire primary is the nation's first presidential contest and can be decisive in shaping the contests that follow.
Are 55+ Communities Really "Retirement" Communities?
Many people who live in age-restricted communities (usually for people age 55+) are still gainfully employed. So why would they live in what is considered a "retirement" community? Why not continue to live in a standard neighborhood? People still employed choose age-restricted communities for the same reasons as people who are retired do: the safety, amenities and sense of community that one can provide. And whether employed or not, once the kids are grown, it is sometimes nice to live in a neighborhood where small children do not congregate.
