When New Hampshire split from Massachusetts in 1741 to become its own state, the area that is now Manchester became known as Derryfield for several decades. However, one man had a very specific vision for the region: to replicate England’s very first industrial city here in the states. Thus, “the Manchester of America” was born, bringing with it a revolution of industry and innovation. Cotton mills and textile factories arose all over the area, creating jobs and opportunities for thousands of residents. Manchester hasn’t stopped growing since.
Today, although it is the largest city in New Hampshire, as well as northern New England as a whole, it enjoys status as one of the United States’ most affordable and beneficial cities to live and start a business in. Manchester’s reputation attracts all sorts of businesses, including many reputable coin and precious metal dealers.
