Acworth was first chartered in 1752 as Burnet, in honor of William Burnet, who was appointed Royal Governor for the provinces of Massachusetts and New Hampshire in 1728 but died shortly thereafter. No settlements were made under this charter, and in 1766 the Masonian proprietors regranted the land to new settlers under the name Acworth, honoring Sir Jacob Acworth of the British Admiralty. Acworth's meetinghouse, built in 1821 and now the Congregational Church, is known for its federal-style architecture. Both the church and the Acworth Silsby Library are on the National Register of Historic Places.
