New Hampshire Economic Development


University of New Hampshire
University of New Hampshire

New Hampshire’s largest industries since the mid-19th century, textiles and shoes, began their final decline after the war was over. State and local governments, however, along with new state and community-based industrial development foundations, moved aggressively to fill the gap. Tourism received a boost from vigorous state-financed promotion and the completion of a second state ski area at Mount Sunapee in 1948.

The New Hampshire Turnpike opened in 1950, later supplemented by two other high-speed highways. The New Hampshire congressional delegation lobbied vigorously for construction of Pease Air Force Base, which began in 1951. Nearly 1,000 new businesses incorporated in the state between 1951 and 1955, creating a highly diversified manufacturing industry, including electronics and precision-tool making. These new businesses supplemented the lumber and paper industries and the growing tourism trade as mainstays of the state’s economy. "New Hampshire" © Emmanuel BUCHOT, Encarta, Wikipedia
