NEW HAMPSHIRE. DURHAM. Share. black, buff. No 88. The First New Hampshire Turnpike was incorporated in 1796, and was completed in 1801. It connected Portsmouth, New Hampshire's only seaport, with the state capitol, Concord. It ran thirty-six miles from the Piscataqua Bridge in Durham through Lee, Barrington, Nottingham, Northwood, Epsom, Chichester, and Pembroke to the Federal Bridge over the Merrimack River in Concord NH. The first New Hampshire turnpike system was created through turnpike companies which built 500 miles of toll roads, and more than 80 New Hampshire turnpikes during the years 1796-1830. These turnpikes, built by private companies, sold shares to the general public. The money raised was used to construct these toll roads. The actual term "turnpike" refers to a barrier built across the highway, to be opened only after the required tolls were paid. These tollgates were set up at every mile. A typical charge in the early days of New Hampshire, for a horse and rider, was one cent.
