Photographer's Note

Origin: Established in 1735 while New Hampshire was still under governance of
Massachusetts, this town was the site of Fort Number 1 in the line of protective trading
forts bordering the Connecticut River. After New Hampshire became an independent
province under Governor Benning Wentworth, the town was incorporated in 1752 as
Chesterfield, after Philip Stanhope, fourth Earl of Chesterfield. The Earl served as
Secretary of State and joined William Pitt in opposing what they considered England's
unfair treatment of the American Colonies. Chesterfield was the birthplace of Harlan
Fiske Stone, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court from 1941 to 1946.
