Dracut

Dracut

The Town of Dracut is situated on the periphery of Lowell and southern New Hampshire. In 1653, the community was part of the Wamiset Praying Town, one of the preserves set aside by the colonists for Christianized Indians. The town has several large ponds, bogs and swamps and numerous brooks. Its early economy relied on fishing and milling of lumber, which led to its 19th century industries of paper making and cotton textile manufacturing. These mills attracted Irish and French Canadian immigrants. Some of Dracut’s rural landscapes survive along the state boundary, as do some handsome historic houses. One of the better known is the 290-year-old Coburn/Cutter House, with its massive beams, huge center chimney and fireplaces. The building, dating from about 1700, has served as the site of annual crafts fairs in Dracut.
