Hill is a town in Merrimack County, New Hampshire, United States. The population was 1,017 at the 2020 census.[2] It is home to William Thomas State Forest.


Originally granted as "New Chester" in 1753, the town took the name "Hill" in 1837 in honor of Isaac Hill,[3] governor of New Hampshire from 1836 to 1839. To accommodate the construction of the Franklin Falls Dam, the village of Hill was relocated in 1941.[4]


According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 26.7 square miles (69.2 km2), of which 26.6 square miles (68.8 km2) are land and 0.2 square miles (0.5 km2) are water, comprising 0.66% of the town.[1] The Pemigewasset River forms the eastern boundary of the town, and its tributary the Smith River forms two portions of the northern boundary. The southwest corner of the town drains south via Mountain Brook to the Blackwater River in neighboring Andover, a tributary of the Contoocook River. Via the Pemigewasset and Contoocook rivers, Hill lies fully within the Merrimack River watershed.[5]

The highest point in town is Dickinson Hill,[6] with an approximate elevation of 1,910 feet (580 m) above sea level.
