Marking History: Republic Of Indian Stream In Pittsburg

Jan 24, 2014

New Hampshire’s northernmost historical marker is also the state’s oldest.

The Republic of Indian Stream in Pittsburg was the first historical marker erected when the state launched the program in 1958.

It tells the story of the land dispute between the United States and Canada that led to the creation of a short-lived, self-declared constitutional republic.

As part of our occasional series, Marking History, NHPR’s Michael Brindley travels north to Pittsburg to speak with a local couple about the story behind the Republic of Indian Stream.
