Town Spotlight: Septic Pumping in Sullivan, New Hampshire
The small town of Sullivan is located in Cheshire County, New Hampshire with a population of about 750 people according to the 2010 U.S. Census. The town was incorporated on September 27, 178, and although it is a small town, it has a rich history.
The History of Sullivan, New Hampshire
This gorgeous town was named after General John Sullivan, who was a General in the Revolutionary War, a delegate to the Continental Congress, and the Governor of New Hampshire. He was also nominated by President George Washington in 1789 to be the first federal judge for the United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire and he held the post until he died in 1795 at the age of 54.
In addition to the man the town is named after, Sullivan is also known for being the first town in New Hampshire to dedicate a monument honoring the soldiers from Sullivan that were lost in the Civil War. The monument was dedicated on July 4th, 1867–two years after the end of the Civil War. At the dedication, there were speeches delivered, a dinner was held, and the new monument, which bore the names of the young soldiers from Sullivan lost during the Civil War, was unveiled. Now, 150 years later, the monument still stands and overlooks the church and common area at Sullivan Center.
The town has a total area of just under 19 square miles and is served by the New Hampshire Route 9 state highway. Sullivan now has its own independent school district and school administrative unit after leaving the Monadnock Regional School District in 2013.
