Historyedit

Prior to British colonization, the Connecticut River valley was populated by bands of the Western Abenaki, who lived in sometimes-large villages of longhouses3 Depending on the season, they would either remain near their villages to fish, gather plants, engage in sugaring, and trade or fight with their neighbors, or head to nearby fowling and hunting grounds Later, they also farmed tobacco and the "three sisters": corn, beans, and squash3

The Common c 1904

Colonization eventually resulted in the establishment of the Province of New Hampshire Within that province, the area known as modern-day Unity was part of a territory chartered in 1753 and named "Buckingham" after John Hobart, 1st Earl of Buckinghamshire1 Grants in the area were given by both the early Massachusetts government and by Governor Benning Wentworth, which led to disputes The town was incorporated as "Unity" in 1764 after amicable resolutions of the disputes were reached1

In the 1790 census, the town had 538 residents1 Unity was on the Second New Hampshire Turnpike, an important trade route chartered in 1799 that connected Amherst, New Hampshire to Claremont4 By 1810, the town had 1,044 inhabitants, with two grain mills, five sawmills, a clothing mill and a distillery Sheep farming was a principal business
