When Danbury, in Merrimack County, New Hampshire, was first settled in 1771, it was part of Alexandria. However, since it was divided from the rest of Alexandria by mountainous terrain, residents voted to separate, and it became an independent town in 1795, named for the town in Connecticut. Danbury is largely hilly, its highest point being Tinkham Hill in the northern part of town, at 2,320 feet above sea level, while Ragged Mountain and its summits occupy the southern portion of Danbury. While its early economy was based on cattle and sheep raising, the town soon developed several mills, and is now known for its resort and recreational facilities.
