Hooksett NHMerrimack Valley region community Hooksett NHThe town of Hooksett, New Hampshire was first known as Chester Woods and Rowe’s Corner. This town was called Hooksett for nearly fifty years before being incorporated. The name may have come from a hook-shaped island in the Merrimack or from early fishermen, who called the area Hookline Falls. Rocky ledges flank the Merrimack River, and there were several cross-river ferries located here, as well as lumber mills and a brick-making establishment powered by the falls. In 1794, the lottery-funded Hooksett Canal became part of the transportation facilities of the Amoskeag cotton mills in Manchester. The Hooksett Tolls on I-93 in the town generate hundreds of thousands of dollars for state coffers.
