Penacook Homes/Land For Sale
Penacook is a village at the northern most part of the city of Concord, NH. It lies along Concord's northern border with Boscawen. The name comes from the Pennacook tribe that lived in the area. Penacook (Pennycook) was the original name of the plantation incorporated by present-day Concord.
Penacook is located along the Contoocook River which drops 100 feet in slightly over one mile, just before joining the Merrimack River. Early hydro-powered industry was attracted to the site, and Penacook grew into a mill town.
Penacook has its own phone exchange (753), which includes a portion of Boscawen, and its own ZIP code (03303), shared with Boscawen and Webster. Most of Penacook is located in the Merrimack Valley School District, though part is in the Concord School District.
