Overview

This history of Warren was written by a native son who became an attorney and prominent citizen in Manchester, New Hampshire, and died over one hundred years ago in 1893. Actually, it is the much expanded second edition of a work first compiled in 1854 while Little was a student at Dartmouth. He had a lifelong passion for local history, and also wrote a history of Weare, New Hampshire, and numerous articles for the Granite Monthly. In this volume, Little traces the history of Warren from the pre-settlement era of the Pemigewasset Indians down to post Civil War times, and includes a wealth of information on the first three generations of local residents. There is also an extensive appendix with lists of original land grants, tax records, civil lists, a table of longevity, some brief genealogies and biographies, and a copy of Amos Clough's diary kept during a winter sojourn on Mount Moose Hillock in 1870. An every-name index completes this work. In addition to a new preface, this reprint also includes a biography of the author compiled by Dr. Robert W. Averill from his own research and an earlier sketch by Edward Whitcher. It also has a complete set of illustrations assembled from three separate copies of the original, all of which were incomplete, plus a few additional illustrations which were not in the original work. (1870, 1993), 2015, 5½x8½, paper, index, 632 pp.
