Acworth is a town located in Western New Hampshire in the Dartmouth/Sunapee region of the state. It is situated in Southern Sullivan county and encompasses a total area of 39.1 square miles, .2 of which is water. As of the 2010 United States Census, Acworth was home to 891 people.
The land that comprises Acworth was first chartered by Governor Benning Wentworth in the year 1752. At the time, it was known as “Burnet,” in honor of former Massachusetts Bay governor William Burnet. When the French and Indian War began in 1754, it halted settlement of the area. Wentworth rechartered the land in 1766, giving it the name “Acworth,” after English admiral Sir Jacob Acworth. Settlement began in 1768 and, in 1772, the area was officially incorporated as a town.
