Francestown, NH

Francestown, New Hampshire
 
 
The Town of Francestown, incorporated in 1772, was named for Frances Wentworth Deering, wife of John Wentworth, who was the Governor of New Hampshire at that time. A bit of a scandal surrounded this marriage as Frances had only been widowed from her first husband for 14 days before she married John Wentworth.

Francestown is rich in local history. The 2nd New Hampshire Turnpike, completed in 1800, ran from the southeast end of town to the northwest end on its way from Amherst to Claremont. There were two toll sites located in Francestown, one near Avery Road in the south of town and one near Gibson Tavern (now Francestown Resort and Spa) in the north. This continued to be a toll road until 1837. The Turnpike was also used as a connector road for the stage coach route from Boston to Montreal bringing a steady flow of traffic and business opportunity to Francestown.
