Acworth

Background
Acworth, a picturesque hilltop community, was granted in 1752 and named Burnet for a Bay Colony royal governor. When incorporated by New Hampshire in 1766, it was renamed in honor of British Lord Acworth. Fine beryl and other museum-quality crystals have been found here, but the town’s true gem is its beautiful meetinghouse, facing the common and appropriately flanked by the school and town hall.
