Long Description:
One of the earliest highways in New Hampshire, it was authorized in 1765 as a supply route from the tidewater port of Durham to the colony's northern settlements in the Coos. This section of the road through Gilmanton was built in 1770 nine years after the township was settled.

There is an expansive view a few hundred yards North of the historic marker.
