DISTRICT NO. 1
AND HEAD CEMETERY
Headstones date to the early 1800s when this
area was part of Chester. Hooksett settlers and
their descendants are buried here including Natt
Head, NH Governor (1879 - 1881).
Chester first had a school on this site in 1805.
This brick structure, built by Hooksett in 1839,
was the District 1 schoolhouse until it closed in
1912 due to dwindling student population.
It was converted to a chapel by the town in
1922 and rededicated in 1966 by the Women's Club.
Vacant for many years, in 2010 the Heritage
Commission return it to its original use.
Listed on NH State Register of Historic Places
ERECTED IN 2010 BY THE TOWN OF HOOKSETT
