about Nashua

Nashua is a city located in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire. Built around the now-departed textile industry, in recent decades it has been part of southern New Hampshire's economic expansion as part of the Boston, Massachusetts region.

As of the 2000 census, Nashua had a total population of 86,605.

Nashua is located at 42°45'4" North, 71°28'51" West (42.751038, -71.480817). According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 87.5 km² (31.8 mi²). 80.0 km² (30.9 mi²) of it is land and 2.5 km² (0.9 mi²) of it is water. The total area is 2.98% water.

Nashua history

Like many New England cities, Nashua grew because of textile mills using water power. The city was originally part of the Dunstable grant in Massachusetts until the state line was drawn in 1741, after which it was broken into smaller pieces that form the current towns and cities. Nashua is approximately in the center of the original 1673 Dunstable grant.

By 1836, Nashua Corp. had built three cotton mills and was producing 9.3 million yards of cotton cloth annually on 710 looms. Six railroad lines crossed the city with 56 trains entering and departing daily before the Civil War.

What is now Nashua broke in two for a while, following a tax dispute between the town of Nashville north of the Nashua River, where most of the wealthier people lived, and town of Nashua south of the river. The two joined together and chartered the city in 1853.

The textile business started moving to the South during the Depression, with the last mill closing in 1949. Sanders Associates, a newly created defense firm that is now part of BAE Systems, moved into one of the closed mills and launched the city's rebirth. The arrival of Digital Equipment Corp. (now part of Hewlett-Packard) in the 1970s made the city part of the Boston-area high-tech corridor.

The city may be best known today as a shopping mecca to residents of Massachusetts who come north of the state border to take advantage of the lack of a sales tax in New Hampshire. There is a use tax that Massachusetts charges its residents to pay for items purchased in New Hampshire that are subject to taxation in Massachusetts, but it is unknown if anyone actually pays.

The city has a daily newspaper, the Telegraph of Nashua, a weekly newspaper, The Broadcaster, and two regional radio stations, 1590 AM ("the Tiger") and 106.3 FM (WHOB).
