Mason is a town in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire with a population of around 2,000. Tucked between the small towns of Brookline to the east and Greenville to the west, this quiet, southern New Hampshire town has a quaint country air to it that is all but lost in today’s fast-paced society. This small middle-of-nowhere town has several places worth visiting. Pickity Place, a cottage built in 1786 houses a restaurant, bookstore, gift shop, garden shop and greenhouse and the Red Riding Hood Museum. The cottage was represented in the book Little Red Riding Hood as the setting for grandmother’s house.
First known as “Number One”, in a sequence of New Hampshire/Massachusetts border towns, the town’s charter was granted in 1749. Needing to decide on a name, the townsfolk wanted to name the town “Sharon”, but in 1768 Governor John Wentworth changed the name to Mason in honor of Captain John Mason, the man who held the original New Hampshire land grant given by King Charles the First.
Fishing is very popular in Mason. Hiking trails through thick forests lead to some of the finest scenic views south of the White Mountains. With Nashua only 25 minutes away, Mason is close to commerce and industry but still distant enough to remain serene and undeveloped imparting upon Mason residents a feeling of seclusion and security while being close to city convenience.
