Moving to New Hampshire
New Hampshire holds a wealth of history and an abundance of beauty. Of the thirteen original colonies, New Hampshire was the first to declare its independence from Mother England -- a full six months before the Declaration of Independence was signed. As leaders in the revolutionary cause, New Hampshire delegates received the honor of being the first to vote for the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.
New Hampshire became the 9th state on June 21st, 1788. With an area of 9,351 square miles, New Hampshire ranks as the 46th largest state in the USA. It fares about the same in population: With over 1.2 million people (as of the 2000 census), New Hampshire is the 41st most populous state. Major industries are textiles, lumber, tourism, electronic equipment, and software. New Hampshire has a changeable climate, with wide variations in daily and seasonal temperatures. The variations are affected by proximity to the ocean, mountains, lakes or rivers. New Hampshire shares borders with Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, Canada and the Atlantic Ocean. The state enjoys all four seasons and fall is gloriously famous for its spectacular show of foliage.
