View of Nashua, Hillsborough County, N.H., 1883.

This bird’s-eye view print of Nashua, New Hampshire was drawn and published in 1883. Nashua was settled in the 1650's as Dunstable. When New Hampshire and Maine re-established their border at this location in 1741, the town was divided. Dunstable was established as Nashua in 1746.

Nashua was a fur-trading town in the early years at the confluence of the Nashua and Merrimack rivers. In the late 1700's a canal and locks were built around Pawtucket Falls enabling shipping along the Merrimack. Manufacturing interests began to appear in the 1800's, using the fast-moving waters of the Nashua as a power source.

A dispute over taxation between the wealthier residents north of the Nashua and the working class residents south of the river lasted eleven years in the mid-1800's. During that time northern Nashua referred to itself as Nashville and the south portion was known as Nashua.

By the 1860's Nashua was a major eastern railroad hub, having six railroad lines traversing the town.
