Where Does The North Country Begin, And End, in N.H.?


Over the last few months, here at Word of Mouth, we've asked listeners to send us their questions about northern New Hampshire.

In the first episode of our North Country Series answering those questions, we cover the basics: Where exactly does the north country begin, how has the economy adjusted to the decline of paper mills, and what makes this part of New Hampshire so unique? 

If you're confused about the many different geographic definitions of the north country, we drew up a handy map for you.

Stay tuned for the next episode in our series, a deep dive into the North Country's evolving tourism industry.
