Chester is a town located in the Southeastern corner of New Hampshire in the Merrimack Valley region of the state. It is situated in the central part of Rockingham County and encompasses 26 square miles, only .1 of which is water. As of the 2010 United States Census, Chester was home to 4,768 people.
Chester was incorporated as a town in 1722. At the time, it included the land that now comprises the nearby town of Candia. That area was separated and incorporated on its own in 1763. Chester was first called “chestnut country,” then later adopted the name Chester in honor of the English town of Cheshire.
