NH’s Immigration Story

Our 9 month series, New Hampshire's Immigration Story explores just that... the vast history of who came to New Hampshire, when they came, why they came, the challenges they faced once they landed on Granite State soil and the contributions that they brought to our state. Over the next 9 months The Exchange, Word of Mouth, and our News Department will look at the issue of immigration from its first arrivals to the newest refugees calling New Hampshire home.

We'll see how immigration affects our economy, health care, education system, culture and our current system of law. We'll also shine a light on what's going on in New Hampshire today, as we uncover the groups, societies and little known people who are making an impact all over the state.
