Concord is the capital city of New Hampshire. While it is relatively small as far as capital cities go with just over 50,000 people, it’s rich with history and interesting sights and activities. Those who choose to visit Concord will find a small city full of hidden gems and treasures. There are many fun and interesting things to do for both lovers of art and science as well as those looking to explore the outdoors.
The area that would become Concord was settled in 1725 by Captain Ebenezer Eastman and his company. The group came from nearby Haverhill, Massachusetts and were on specific orders to settle a new town in the area. When the land was originally incorporated it was under the name Rumford and wouldn’t get changed until 1765 when Governor Benning Wentworth got into a border dispute with the neighboring town of Bow. Once the dispute was settled, the town was renamed Concord to reflect the new concord, or agreement, between the two towns.
Some of Concord’s earliest houses still stand to this day as protected landmarks at the northern end of modern-day Main Street. Concord eventually became the natural choice for the state’s capital as it had a canal and lock system that allowed boats to pass around the southern Amoskeag Falls which led straight to the growing economic, social, and capital of Boston. The 1819 State House is to this day the oldest capitol in the United States in which the branches of government meet in the original chambers. The original industries that drove the economic engines of the city were transportation based. First, it was Abbot-Downing Coaches, who created both standard and luxury coaches for the wealthy. Later, it was the rail industry as Concord became a railroad hub leading to various New England cities.
Today, however Concord’s economy has shifted into the healthcare, insurance and printing industries. In a move that is consistent with many of the New England states, there are several education, government and healthcare facilities that act as the main employers for the city. Being the state capital, the State of New Hampshire is the city’s largest employer and employees more workers than the next three companies combined. Specifically, those are the Concord Hospital, Steeplegate Mall, Genesis Healthcare and the Concord School District. With no sales tax, income tax and an unemployment rate that is half the national average, Concord is an excellent place to live and work.
As mentioned earlier the most unique feature of Concord is its State House, which is not only operational today but also welcomes visitors to learn the rich history of the building and the state it serves. The Visitors Center located in the main atrium of the building hosts a series of historic rotating exhibits that often feature artifacts and documents from throughout New Hampshire’s history. For those looking to take a little history home the Center also runs a gift shop with everything from educational materials to U.S. flags that have been flown over the state capitol building. Of course, groups can book guided tours throughout the year to learn more about this historic location first hand, and maybe even see the legislature at work.
For those looking to get outside and enjoy the beautiful New Hampshire weather, then the popular Carter Hill Orchard is the place to be. This is a farm and orchard that was started all the way back in 1760 and still continuously operates to this day, even in the wintertime. When the weather is pleasant in the spring and fall, guests to the orchard are allowed to go out to certain plots and pick their own fruit. This is an excellent family trip where small children and adults alike can get in touch with nature and even bring some home with them.
In the winter months, guests should visit the Cider Works, where Carter Hill churns out authentic apple cider from the apples grown on its land. Another tasty place to stop in is at the Carter Hill bakery where guests can get pies, tarts and other treats all made from the fruit that grows just a few feet away. Finally, the Country Store sells locally made jams, jellies, mustards, hot chocolate, coffee and mulling spices for guests to purchase and take home.
Another great attraction for nature lovers is the Susan N. McLane Audubon Center and Silk Farm Wildlife Sanctuary. This aviary has several different species of birds including bald eagles, red-tailed hawks, peregrine falcons, screech owls, and barn owls that guests can learn about as well as get up close and personal with. Beyond just the animals, the Audubon Center has several miles of trails that are perfect for hiking and biking as well as a gift shop that sells bird watching equipment like guides, binoculars and bird feeders. The Audubon Center also puts on several events throughout the year to highlight certain species or encourage the conservations of these animal’s natural habitat.
Visitors looking for some entertainment should absolutely stop in to the Capitol Center for The Arts, a recently renovated 1,300-seat theater. The original theater was built in 1927 with an interesting and unique Egyptian motif. The theater hosted major Broadway shows and other musical acts up until 1989, when a major overhaul was needed. Despite the theater moving locations, 250 volunteers spent a grand total of 3,000 hours repainting and refurbishing the theaters original Egyptian style, making it feel as close to the original as possible. Today, it continuous to host both local and tourist theater performances, concerts and even comedy shows.
For a more educational experience, travelers to Concord should stop in to the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center. This science museum is named after famed astronaut Alan Shepherd and Christa McAuliffe, the teacher who tragically died in the explosion of the Challenger rocket. While the museum has exhibits about earth science, the main focus here in on space travel and aviation. In all, the Discovery Center is 45,000 square feet with 20,000 square feet of that space dedicated solely to exhibits. Besides those standard exhibits there is also an observatory, digital planetarium and an outdoor life-size replica of the Mercury-Redstone rocket, the first American manned space booster that was used for six experimental flights that culminated in the first American space flight.
Finally, in a city with most of its roots in history, one of the main attractions is actually quite modern. The Red Rivers Theatres are the result of a local movement to get a movie theater and arthouse that can show independent and foreign films that major theater chains typically don’t carry. The theater opened in 2007, but its creation took a community effort and a $1.8 million capital campaign. In fact, it got its name from the famous Western classic “Red River” featuring John Wayne as a cowboy who must undertake a seemingly impossible, but ultimately successful, journey. Everyone decided that the movie was a perfect metaphor for creating an arthouse theater in the middle of downtown Concord. Today, it is one of the most state-of-the-art theater around and a beautiful place for cinephiles and film students. In all, there are three different screens, and unlike a traditional theater they are all not uniform. Each room has its own dimensions and aesthetic, and what movie plays on what screen is given careful consideration.
