Overview
This territory was part of a large plot of undivided land in the Pemigewasset Valley. Many of those named in the 1763 charter were soldiers from the Seven Years' War who had come from Hollis. The town was named after the original Plymouth colony in Massachusetts. In 1792, the southwest portion of the town was separated, and with a portion of land from Groton, incorporated as Hebron. Plymouth State University was founded here in 1871 as a normal school, evolving as a teachers' college, a state college, and now a state university.
