History of Merrimack and Belknap counties, New Hampshire

Town of Hopkinton

"Previous to 1791, Abraham Rowell had a mill on the Contoocook River, at the place once known as Rowell's Bridge, but now more commonly called West Hopkinton, where there is a hamlet resulting from the continued utilization of the water-power at this point."

D. Hamilton Hurd, "History of Merrimack and Belknap counties, New Hampshire," p. 400
