The small town of Errol, New Hampshire is located in Coos County, north of the White Mountains, along NH Route 26. The town was formed in 1774, as a grant by Governor John Wentworth to Timothy Ruggles and others, and named for James Hay, 15th Earl of Erroll. Its soil was poor, but its early settlers were able to grow hay, oats and potatoes. However, the main occupation of Errol residents was lumbering. Today, its economy is largely dependent upon tourism and vacation stays. The Androscoggin River begins in Errol, where the Magalloway River joins the outlet of Umbagog Lake. Androscoggin Wayside Park and Mollidgewock State Park are in Errol.
