The city of Concord is the capital of New Hampshire, and the seat of Merrimack County. It includes the unincorporated villages of Penacook, East Concord, and West Concord. The first inhabitants of the area that was to become Concord were the Pennacook tribe of the Abenaki Native Americans. In 1725, the Province of Massachusetts Bay, who claimed the land west of the Merrimack River, granted the area as the Plantation of Penacook, and it was settled between 1725 and 1727, and incorporated as the town of Rumford in 1734, and renamed Concord in 1765. Following the American Revolution, the geographical location of the city resulted in its being named the state capital, which took place in 1808. Concord borders Boscawen, Bow, Canterbury, Hopkinton, Pembroke, and Webster.
