Plymouth New Hampshire

History and Genealogy

Main Street Looking South -- 1890

Plymouth, incorporated in 1763, is located in the geographical center of New Hampshire in Grafton County. The town is located between
the Lakes Region to the south and the White Mountains to the north. Two rivers meet in Plymouth; the Pemigewasset and the Baker River.
There are approximately 4,000 residents in Plymouth, which is home to Plymouth State College of the University System of New
Hampshire. During the academic year the town population swells to nearly 8,000 inhabitants.

In years gone by the buck glove industry was the mainstay of Plymouth industries, along with logging and of course, farming. The Draper
and Maynard Company enjoyed a wide reputation as manufacturers of sporting goods and sports equipment. The famous Babe Ruth of the
Boston Red Sox paid a personal visit to the company in the 1930s when the factory was in its hey day.

Years ago the snow trains stopped carrying the hundreds of skiers coming to the White Mountains from Boston and other metropolitan
areas. Stopping off in Plymouth, they could find lodging at various fine hotels and inns in the town.

The surrounding lakes and campgrounds are filled with visitors during the summer months. And you can still find a beautiful covered
bridge to drive through in West Plymouth.

You're always welcome in Plymouth, New Hampshire.
