The New Hampshire Colony

By: Eli Baker

Year Founded and Founder and Reason Founded

This colony was founded by John Wheelwright and John Mason in 1638 for fishing and agricultural purposes.

Economic Resources

The New Hampshire colony had a few economic resources, like fish and ship-building. Also, they must have had lumber, because wood is needed to make ships. Some kinds of fish that they fished for were the striped bass and bluefish.

Climate and Geography

The climate of this colony was cold in the long winters, which gave way to moderately warm in it's short summers. This was partially due to it's location, which was in the northeast sector of the U.S. It had rocky soil which made it hostile soil for growing crops. There was also evergreen forests because of the long winters.
