Manchester, New Hampshire

Manchester, located along the Merrimack River, is the largest city in New Hampshire, with a population of approximately 109,000. Nicknamed "the Queen City," Manchester was incorporated in 1751 as Derryfield, and renamed Manchester in 1810, after England's great industrial city. A textile manufacturing center until very recently, Manchester is becoming a revitalized modern city, with a regional airport, professional sports teams, and a major retail center, the Mall of New Hampshire. Many of the historic mill buildings and tenement housing have been renovated into condominiums, shops and educational institutions which preserve the charm of the original architecture.

Originally part of Massachusetts, Manchester was first settled in 1722, by John Goffe, who would build a dam and sawmill on Cohas Brook. The original land grants were invalidated when New Hampshire broke away from Massachusetts in 1741, and the settlement was rechartered in 1751. In 1807, a canal and lock system was built allowing passage around Amoskeag Falls, and the Amoskeag Cotton & Woolen Manufacturing Company incorporated in 1810. By 1846, the mill, renamed Amoskeag Manufacturing Company, had built a company town on the east bank of the Merrimack and its No. 11 Mill was the world's largest cotton mill. The Amoskeag foundry and locomotive works produced rifles, sewing machines, locomotives and other goods. The W.H. McElwain Company, founded in 1902, was the world's largest shoe factory under a single roof, even before its acquisition by International Shoe Company in 1921. By the middle of the 20th century, however, Manchester's industrial might was waning. The Amoskeag mills closed in 1935, and International Shoe was gone by the 1960s. Although some of the mill buildings have been torn down, others have been repurposed. The McElwain shoe factory is now partly occupied by Hesser College, and the Amoskeag mills house artist's studios, software companies, and the Millyard Museum.
