Old Willey House 1793-1898

Hart's Location was named after Colonel John Hart of Portsmouth In 1772, the land was granted to Thomas Chadbourne, also of Portsmouth4 Native Americans used a trail up the Saco River valley through Crawford Notch, and during the French and Indian Wars, many English captives were taken to Canada that way But the pass through the White Mountains was otherwise unknown until 1771, when Timothy Nash discovered it hunting moose, and told Governor John Wentworth5

The obscure Indian trail transformed into the Coös Road, on which was built a small public house in 1793 It was abandoned, but in 1825 Samuel Willey, Jr occupied it with his wife, five children, and two hired hands6 During a violent storm on August 28, 1826, they all perished in a landslide known as Willey's Slide They fled their home and took refuge in a shelter, but it was destroyed while the house remained unscathed A rock outcrop uphill divided the slide, which flowed around the home and reunited below it The door was found gaping, a bible open on the table Their tragedy inspired "The Ambitious Guest" 1835 by Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Mount Willey was named in their memory The house became part of a larger inn, then burned in 1898 Today, the location is a state historic site7

In 1875, the Portland and Ogdensburg Railroad completed its line up through Crawford Notch Passengers thrilled to traverse the Frankenstein Trestle, 520 feet 158 meters long and 85 feet 26 meters above the ravine floor, and then the Willey Brook Bridge, 400 feet 122 meters long and 94 feet 29 meters high Later part of the Mountain Division of the Maine Central Railroad, the route is still traveled by the Conway Scenic Railroad8

According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 186 square miles 481 km2, of which 185 square miles 479 km2 is land and 012 square miles 03 km2, or 056%, is water2

The shape of Hart's Location is unusual: about 11 miles 18 km long and 15 miles 24 km wide, with crooked boundaries that echo the confines of Crawford Notch, threaded by the upper Saco River and US Route 302 near the centerline of the town, and pinched from both sides between steep mountains and in some areas sheer cliffs above This anomaly is heightened on maps that show county lines: Coos County lies immediately to the east and Grafton County to the west, but Hart's Location is part of Carroll County, though barely connected to it

The highest point in Hart's Location is 3,900 feet 1,200 m above sea level along the town's western boundary, beneath the summit of 4,285-foot 1,306 m Mount Willey Arethusa Falls, New Hampshire's highest waterfall, located in the neighboring township of Livermore, is a popular hiking destination with access from US Route 302 in Hart's Location The town lies fully within the Saco River watershed9

The town is a popular ice climbing destination in the winter months

Federal electionsedit

New Hampshire law allows towns with fewer than 100 residents to open the polls at midnight and close them as soon as all registered voters have cast their ballots13 Hart's Location is one of the New Hampshire communities where the first votes are cast in the Democratic and Republican New Hampshire primaries, the first presidential primaries in the United States during each presidential election year The Hart's Location midnight voting tradition, which began in 1948, actually predates the more widely known Dixville Notch practice; however, Dixville Notch generally receives greater publicity

The community's voting tradition received a nod in the 2002 third-season episode of US television program The West Wing, in an episode entitled "Hartsfield's Landing", named after a town clearly modeled on either Hart's Location, or its companion, Dixville Notchcitation needed
