Gossville and Goboro Road NEW

This history of the village of Gossville and Goboro Road is based primarily on two sources. The first is the report of the 1991 Gossville Historic District. The study included 39 primary contributing structures, one primary site, 30 secondary contributing structures and 21 non contributing structures. The Gossville bounds start with the Bickford homestead on the east end and following west on Route 4 to the old Suncook Railroad bed, then north to the Sherburne Road. The second source are notes made by Benjamin M. Towle in 1936 of his recollections of the homes and families living on Goboro Road. The two studies overlap, with Mr. Towle's notes extending from the west end of Gossville, up Goboro Road, to the Chichester town line. Includes information on the early history, families and residents. The book contains over 130 images from the Epsom Historical Associations archives. 134 pages....PREVIEW (2014)
