Around Hooksett: Hooksett and Auburn

Noyes, Alice
(Arcadia, 1997)

The town of Hooksett was created from parts of several other towns, Goffstown, Dunbarton, and Chester (now Auburn). The Merrimack River divides the town, which harnessed the waterpower for its mills and factories. Pictures of the 1936 flood show how the town was affected by that disaster. In Auburn, Lake Massabesic lured many people to its peace and tranquility. Its fine white sands were used by early glassblowers.
