Hannah Duston Memorial was erected in 1874 and is the first publically-funded statue in New Hampshire. Located on a small island at the confluence of the Contoocook and Merrimack Rivers, the statue commemorates the escape of Hannah Duston, who was captured in 1697 in Haverhill, Massachusetts during the French and Indian War. A short walk from the parking area brings visitors to a pretty picnic spot on the shore of the river.
This park is unstaffed and open year-round for recreation. Should an emergency arise during your visit, please call 911 for assistance.
