You’ll find both the old and the new in Hopkinton and the adjoining village of Contoocook. The “old” includes the oldest covered railroad bridge in the nation and the only building built to specifically be a historical society building. The “new” is a thriving business community, including several talented artists and some great retail shops.

Pack a picnic lunch and bring the family to Beech Hill Farm in Hopkinton. You can take a hike, pet the farm animals, play in a big sand pile, shop for local products and get an ice cream cone.
The Contoocook Railroad Depot was completed in 1849 as one of the first substantial railroad passenger stations west of Concord on the Concord & Claremont Railroad. Behind the depot, you’ll find a wooden Pullman Passenger Coach on rails and the historic Concord Railroad Historic Bridge, the world’s oldest surviving covered railroad bridge. A hiking trail along the Contoocook River is also nearby.
