Not far from the Canadian border, Colebrook is the largest town in New Hampshire's Coos County. North of the famous White Mountains region, Colebrook's history dates all the way back to the late 1700s when Colonial Governor John Wentworth re-granted the town's charter. Noted for its excellent soil, Coos County was a favorable area for growing potatoes. Its abundant forests along Beaver Brook also placed Colebrook at the center of the lumbering industry.
