History

In 1765, Gov. Benning Wentworth chartered North Conway and is named for the son of a wealthy English family, Henry Seymour Conway, who was chosen to the House of Commons, engaged in a battle at Culloden and was voted as a Secretary of State. The town was called Pequawket by the original inhabitants, embracing the name of Abenaki Indian community that extended the Saco River to its stockaded center located at Fryeburg in Maine.

The growing auto travel had caused a train decline. The railroad that used to be a part of Boston & Maine discarded the passenger service in 1961 to the area, as well as the freight service the following year. The Conway Scenic Railroad was developed afterward. At present, it provides visitors with a tour of the area that includes Crawford Notch. This station is registered on National Register of Historic Places.

White Mountain Airport was closed in the late ‘80s and was re-constructed as a huge outlet mall known as the Settlers’ Green Outlet Village. The continuous development of the town and its neighboring villages had made Conway the most heavily populated village in Carroll County. The traffic jam resulted to a road system overhaul, which consists of Route 16 expansion through the town, as well as building a road that is equivalent to Rt. 16 to enable the traffic to shift between Intervale and Redstone without interruption. The area’s bypass is being constructed.
