Since New Boston's earliest days the Piscataquog River, which actually means Place of Deer, has influenced residents' lifestyles. In addition to providing settlers with food, it also supplied power for over 100 mills and early industries.
Townspeople's continuous respect for our river has resulted in the preservation of its scenic qualities. The town owns several parcels of riverfront land which have been set aside for our use and are managed and monitored by the Conservation Commission. Trails on three of these pieces provide access to quiet forests, magnificent hilltop views, a beaver pond, and hidden spots from which we can witness some of natures wonders. The Commission hopes that you will enjoy and use these maps to help you become better acquainted with the jewels that the town has set aside for your enjoyment.
