As expected the city of Jackson, New Hampshire was named after a president… but in fact the town, which was first settled in the years prior to the American Revolution, was in fact named twice for an American president. The actual first name of the city, which was consolidated into a settlement after the colonial era governor granted several land grants, was New Madbury. By 1800 the town was renamed in honor of then President John Adams, and for the next 29 years this is what the community was known as Adams. When the town finally incorporated in 1829, the president was Andrew Jackson, hero of the Battle of New Orleans, and thus the town’s name was changed to Jackson, which it remains to this day.Jackson would continue to grow over the years, with the arrival of the railroad and other attractions. Today the city remains a popular year round tourist destination, attracting visitors in the winter for the nearby skiing trails, and in the summer for the picturesque villages, bed and breakfast inns and other colonial era buildings.
