                   AN EARLY HISTORY OF UNITY
From The Gazetteer of the State of New Hampshire published in 1817. UNITY - a township in Cheshire county, was incorporated in 1764, and in 1810, it contained 1,044 inhabitants; bounded N. by Claremont and Newport, E. by Goshen, S. by  Lempster and Acworth, & W. by Charleston, comprising 24, 446 acres. The line which separates this town from Acworth, crosses Cold pond, leaving about 150 acres of it in Unity. Perry’s mountain lies in the southwest part of the town. Little Sugar river rises near this mountain, and a branch of Sugar river in the easterly part of the town. The 2d N.H. turnpike passes through this place to Claremont, and also a very direct road from Goshen to Charleston. There is here a society of Baptists and another of Methodists; each of them has a meeting house. There are in this town 2 grain mills, 5 sawmills, 1 clothing mill, and 1 distillery.     Submitted by T.C. Parziale 5/30/00
