Canaan is a town located in Western New Hampshire in the Dartmouth/Sunapee region of the state. It is situated in the Southern part of Grafton County and encompasses a total area of 55 square miles, 1.8 of which is water. As of the 2010 United States Census, Canaan was home to 3,909 people.
The land that comprises Canaan was first chartered and incorporated as a town in 1761 by Governor Benning Wentworth. It gleans it name from the Connecticut town of the same moniker. Settlement of the area began in 1766 and, in its early years, mills flourished, thanks to the water power from nearby lakes and rivers. In 1847, the Northern Railroad was built in the town, leading to further development.
