Living in Nashua, NH
The city has a long history, as the area has been inhabited for some 8,000 to 10,000 years. The Pennacook people roamed the area at the confluence of the Merrimack and Nashua rivers for centuries, before white settlers arrived in the region in the mid 17th century. The land was contested for numerous years after their arrival, and the metropolis was officially incorporated in 1746.
Many of the people who lived in the area fought in important Revolutionary War battles, including the Battle of Bunker Hill, where more than half of the American combatants were New Hampshire minutemen. Located just 10 miles up the Merrimack River from Lowell, Massachusetts, the city became an important trade center in the mid 19th century as the Industrial Revolution spread throughout the U.S.
Though much of the area's manufacturing capacity was gone by the time World War II came to an end, the construction of the U.S. Interstate Highway System allowed the region to remain relevant to trade. People looking for Nashua apartments may still seem like remnants of the industrial days of the city, but it has gone through quite a transition in becoming the modern shopping and retail center that it is known for.
