Brief History

The town of Newbury was chartered on May 18, 1763. Newbury includes the villages of Newbury, Center Newbury, West Newbury, South Newbury, Boltonville, Peach Four Corners, and Wells River.  In the same fashion as Bellows Falls in Rockingham and White River Junction in Hartford, the village of Wells River in Newbury carries a considerably higher recognition factor than the town in which it is located.
