This list has been compiled using various sources, including several old gazetteers from the 1800s, by Catherine Parziale and Michelle McKenzie. Special help furnished by Meredith Ricker at UNH and Nancy Dutton at the NH State Preservation Office. A special thanks to James S. Pringle, Ph.D. who has found the most obscure towns yet, and to Sherry Holmes who has added a few more.

Pringle Notes
by James S. Pringle, Ph.D., Plant Taxonomist, Royal Botanical Gardens, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada (we thank you very much Jim)

Alpine-This, not very appropriately, was the railroad's name for the locality where what is now Route 4 crossed the railroad (now gone) between Andover and East Andover (= Halcyon, for the railroad).

Avalanche P.O.--Avalanche Brook Station. Former names (too negative?) for Willey House.(Grant's Atlas,)

Ballou City-You already have it as Ballou, but this variant is used in the AMC Guide, 1960 ed.

Boy Mountain Station-This was on the railroad that formerly ran from Whitefield to Berlin, where it crossed the road north from Jefferson Notch. You'll find it in the 1916 edition of the AMC Trail Guide.

Bridgewater Station-I believe that briefly, there was a Bridgewater Station where the railroad (now gone) went through the extreme northeast corner of Bridgewater, remote from the village.The railroad only went through Bridgewater for a very short distance, but I believe there was a serious wreck there.

Bungy - There was another, near, but distinct from, Wildwood, about where Routes 112 and 116 intersect.This is on old road maps.Its existence was confirmed by Robert S. Monahan (now deceased), former Dartmouth College Forester, who before getting that job was employed by the WMNF and lived at Wildwood.

Carrigain- You already have this former community on the railroad through Crawford Notch as "Mt. Carrigain," but I think it should be cross-referenced.I have seen it as "Carrigain" on old maps and in a recent book on ghost towns. (Being interested in "horticultural archaeology," I noticed especially that, according to the aforementioned book, the gardens were so impressive that when the town faded away the ornamental plants were moved to the grand hotels in the Bretton Woods area.)

Chemung- This is a real omission.To Laconians, at least in the 1950s, Chemung is or was the paradigm of ruralness and in more recent terms, being "out of it."Old topo maps show houses clusted in something more like a settlement than would be discerned now, southwest of Meredith Center, east of Meredith Hill.There's a Chemung State Forest in the area now.

Coos P.O. -= North Stratford, 1888.

East Gilford- In current use for more or less a concentration of residences between the Gunstock ski area and the Gilford-Alton line.

Fittsville- Former name of Cheever.

Gale River- Station on the Profile & Franconia Notch Railroad. The line ran due south from Bethlehem Jct. (= Pierce Bridge) for a few miles, then curved to the west before going south again.This station was located about where it first curved.

Golf Links- Station on the P. & F.N., ca. 2.2 mi N of the last station at Profile House.(AMC Guide, 1916, for these two.)

Hillville- Probably the same as the community later called Uplands or Canterbury Uplands.(Grant's Atlas.)(Uplands was still reasonably distinct as a community ca. 1954, but was rather a hazy concept in 2000, what with the school gone and newer buildings in the area being more dispersed.)

Horse Meadows- Station between Blackmount (= North Haverhill) and Woodsville.

Jamestown- In current or at least recent use for part of Belmont. I believe it's northwest of the village of Belmont.

Jefferson Junction- When there was a branch line up to Jefferson, this was the name for the railroad point that later became Jefferson Station and still later Highlands.

Jefferson Mills- Old name (in use 1872) for Riverton.

Keewaydin- A railroad point about halfway between Alton Bay and Loon Cove. Might be the same as Brookdale. I haven't seen both on the same map or list, and the railroad may have thought that Brookdale and Brookhurst (one on each side of Loon Cove) were too easily confused. Or they might not be the same. Those little stations and flag stops averaged only about a mile apart on that line.

Lafayette- I belive that there was a station called Lafayette on the railroad line (now gone) between Wing Road and Base Station, where it crosses the road between Pierce Bridge and Wing Road. I haven't seen it on a map nor in the list of stations cited below. Ca. 1954 I was riding in a car with some friends along that road and we saw a small, weatherbeaten building that appeared to have a name board that said "Lafayette" along the ridgepole. We found that it was standing by the old railroad bed across a field from the road, about a quarter of a mile east of the point where the road turns north and crosses the railroad bed. A few years later I went back and found the building wrecked in situ, with no trace of the name board. Still later there was no scrap lumber or anything else.

Louisville- Southwest of Bartlett, near the confluence of Louisville and Albany brooks.

Montcalm- Between East Plainfield and Enfield Center; probably an old post-office name for West Enfield. This name, which appeared in atlases of long ago, was revived when they built the Interstate. Another name, which I don't recall, was either resurrected or coined afresh to give a destination name for the next exit. Whatever it is, you'll see it if you drive from New London to Lebanon.

Mt. Delight- About halfway between Deerfield and New Rye, on the Rockingham side of the county line. (Grant's Bankers and Brokers Railroad Atlas, 1888.)

Mt. Madison Springs- Another name for Mineral Spring (station, Gorham).

Mountorne- (maybe sometimes two words). Railroad name for South Lancaster.

New Hampton Station- An early designation for Winona.

North Lancaster- Near the river and the Northumberland town line. (Warren's Common-School Geography, 1872.)

Oliverian- Railroad name for East Haverhill.

Onway Lake- Community between East Candia and Raymond, at the west end of the lake by that name, and station or flag stop on the railroad (now gone) from Manchester to Portsmouth. I was a passenger on a train on that line once, and remember seeing the railroad name board (no building at that time) although we didn't stop there. Onway Lake appears on some present-day road maps.

Osborn- On the road, which may now be only a trail, between Lyme Center and North Dorchester. See Texaco road map, 1932.

Rowantown- In the southern part of Wentworth, where to this day there's a Rowantown Road shown on the new atlas that's in all the bookstores. I heard that years ago this really looked like a deserted village--that people left hurriedly, leaving the furniture, dishes on the table, etc., when smallpox broke out, but I can't vouch for the accuracy of that story. When I was there in the late 1960s, it was all wooded; there was one hunting camp, which might or might not have been an original residence, and otherwise just cellar holes and other such evidence of house sites, including Rosa gallica. (= apothecaries' rose. Horticultural relics at ghost towns)

Side Track- Same as Quint.

Up in Town- Used with capitals in the Citizen for the portion of Laconia north of Lake Opechee

Webster- In addition to being that of the town near Franklin, this was the name of a point on the Kilkenny Railroad, east of Whipples (below), Coös Co., in Kilkenny.

Whipples- On the Kilkenny Railroad, east of the junction at Lancaster, west of Webster, probably within the bounds of Lancaster. Beyond Webster was Kilkenny, where the line ended. Whipples was about as far east as there were ever roads near the railroad, and the name may have been derived from a boardinghouse or farm.

Willowdale- Railroad name for South Littleton. (Several sources.)
