The area was originally inhabited by abenaki, a pennacook people who mainly lived by fishing. The site was founded by the Massachusetts Bay Colony as Pennacook Plantation in 1725 and built from 1727. The settlement was incorporated into Rumford, Massachusetts in 1733. It was decided in 1741 that the settlement should be subject to New Hampshire’s jurisdiction, which led to bitter conflict with the authorities of Massachusetts. The city was given its present name in 1765 after an agreement was reached that it should be incorporated in New Hampshire. Concord became New Hampshire’s capital in 1808, and the capitol building New Hampshire State House was built in 1816-1819.
