Welcome to Nashua, New Hampshire. Nashua, NH was originally part of a grant to Edward Tyng of Dunstable, England. Early Nashua was comprised of a 200 square mile area, called Dunstable. The region included Nashua, Tyngsboro MA, and other border towns.
In 1741 the town was cut in half when the Massachusetts-New Hampshire border was established. The northern half kept the name Dunstable. In 1836 the town took the Nashua River’s name, a Nashaway Indian word for “beautiful river with a pebbly bottom.” Nashua became a manufacturing center, powered by the Middlesex Canal which connected the Merrimack River to Boston. Nashua was incorporated as a city in 1853. US Route 3 is also known as the Daniel Webster Highway. The road crosses Nashua, running from Massachusetts into far northern New Hampshire.
