Named in honor of navel hero Admiral Horatio Nelson, the village of Nelson was placed on a New Hampshire map in 1814. Its charter was granted in 1752 and later incorporated as Monadnock in 1774. It was during this time its first roads were laid out and eventually connected to well established towns. These were the days when a penny meant something. By the mid 1800s, men were paid eight cents an hour, working with higher paid oxen to help keep the roads rut-free and clear.
