History of Pittsburg, New Hampshire

From 1832 to 1835, Pittsburg was called the Territory of Indian Stream (a.k.a Indian Stream Republic). Residents (called Streamers) formed their own government and constitution, and were not part of the United States, Canada, or Great Britain. After five years of unrest between the United States, Canada, Great Britain, and the local Indian tribe, Pittsburg was incorporated in 1840, named after William Pitt, the Prime Minister of Great Britain. By 1842 the land was assigned to New Hampshire as part of the Webster-Ashburton Treaty. When you visit our area, you will note that many local spots are named after the native Americans who once lived here.

Pittsburg Geography & Landscape

Pittsburg is the northernmost town in New Hampshire, sharing borders with Canada, Maine, and Vermont. With a land mass of 291.3 square miles, Pittsburg is the largest incorporated municipality in the Northeast. Yet, it only has a population of around 900 people year-round.

Pittsburgh's landscape is dominated by lush forests, mountains, lakes, rivers, streams, and ponds. The Connecticut Lakes—Lake Francis, First Lake, Second Lake, Third Lake, and Fourth Lake—are found within Pittsburg's borders and flow into the Connecticut River, which empties 255 miles south into Long Island Sound, New York.
