The Tourist Attractions in Nashua:
Formerly known as Dunstable and incorporated as a town in 1746, Nashua was renamed in 1836 after the Nashua River which the town sits upon. The town started life as a fur trading post but really grew during the industrial revolution when the Nashua River was used to power numerous cotton mills, putting Nashua on the map. Although most evidence of this period in history has now gone, Nashua does still have some historical buildings as well as several other tourist attractions.
