About the New Hampshire College of Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts

The University of New Hampshire, incorporated in 1866 by the state legislature as the New Hampshire College of Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts, was one of the early land-grant institutions of public higher education established under the Morrill Act. First situated in Hanover in connection with Dartmouth College, the New Hampshire College relocated to its Durham campus in 1893 after Benjamin Thompson, a prosperous farmer, bequeathed land and money to further the development of the College. The College thrived in Durham, and in 1923 the state legislature granted it a new charter as the University of New Hampshire.
