Overview
More than any other town in New Hampshire, Derry has changed dramatically over the last thirty years. Gone are the fields, the forests, and the fine old homes, and in their place stand malls, modern housing developments, and multi-lane highways. It is difficult now to imagine the scene in 1719 when a small group of Scottish pioneers laid claim to the New Hampshire wilderness, building a meetinghouse close to a young oak tree. The town of Derry grew up around this site, and for nearly ten generations the oak stood as a respected presence within the community, symbolizing Derry's strength of purpose and proud traditions.

This delightful collection of over two hundred photographs has been carefully selected to show a Derry that, like the old oak tree, is no longer with us. For some of us, Derry will be a vivid reminder of the landscape, the landmarks, and the people we have known, and for others it will open a door into the past and bring our heritage alive.
