We can all think of certain stereotypes that we associate with different parts of our state.
Cities further north and closer to Canada are in what we might call the “boonies”. Here we assume there are more moose and bobcats than people, existing buildings probably need some TLC, finding cell service is near impossible and takes forever to get to at the nearest Walmart or Market Basket.
When you think of the central region of the state, you probably remember scenic natural attractions like Winnipesaukee, the White Mountains, the Kancamangus Highway, a wide assortment of ski resorts, and popular tourist towns like Conway.
The southern part of our state is home to larger cities like Concord, Manchester, and Nashua. Then there’s our beloved Seacoast, known for its rich history, popular beaches, and proximity to Maine and Massachusetts, among other things.
But among all these areas, which are the least populated cities?
After taking a look at 2020 census, we found the 20 least populated cities in all of New Hampshire. A few of these places have fewer than a hundred residents, and one, a literal ghost town, has only two.
Could you imagine living in a city with just one other person? You literally ARE the city.
So, let’s explore and see what these places are. How many of them have you been?
A quick note: These results are from the 2020 census, and only communities classified as cities were included.
