How SomersworthNow.Com Came To Be.

Want to know more about how SomersworthNow.Com came to be and who is behind the stories that are written here? I’m assuming the answer is yes. In that case if you are you sitting comfortably let the story begin:


Jenne is the blogger/photographer behind SomersworthNow.Com. She loves to explore Somersworth and you'll find her, here, there and everywhere.Once upon a time, there was a lady who traveled from her homeland of England, and found herself in the strange land called, America.

There she found the city known as Somersworth, which is located in the kingdom of New Hampshire, and was, very much, to her liking.

Somerworth New HampshireNestled between the White Mountains and the Seacoast of New Hampshire and bordering the kingdom of Maine, it seemed like the perfect place to settle down and this is exactly what she did.

Despite her strange accent and customs she was welcomed by many in the community. A community that numbers 12,000, making it the smallest city in New Hampshire.

It wasn’t long before she could be found referring to herself as a Hilltopper. This was a custom that had been adopted by the locals long ago, on account of the seven hills that offer stunning views of the city and far beyond.

Somersworth Mayor Dana HillardAs time passed, she found herself writing about her fellow Hilltoppers, the public servants that often exhibited strange but fascinating customs that were uniquely theirs.

She discovered restaurants, parks, and businesses that were as unique as the city in which they are located.

Summersworth History MuseumShe soon discovered Somersworth’s rich history, thanks in part to the amazing people who curate it at the history museum, and she began write about what she had learned.

Over time the fair maiden of the British Isles began to share her articles via a new land that she had created: SomersworthNow.Com.

Her only wish: To share her thoughts and musings from around the city, she now calls home. She also encourages others to share their knowledge and welcomes all and every thought, comment, and, musing any visitors to SomersworthNow, might have.

This is the story of Jenne and how she came to create SomersworthNow.Com.

The shorter version of the story of SomersworthNow.Com can be found below:

Jenne writes about the city of Somersworth, New Hampshire, in order to help others who call or have called Somersworth home, connect, inspire and share it rich history and Hilltopper spirit. Jenne does this because Somersworth is her adopted home city but simply put; she loves living here.

Put on a concert at the high school in Berwick to honor them and raise money….I did have the newspaper clipping. So you should be able to find it…..would be a great memory to all who remember this in Somersworth and Berwick… Emma Drinczyk Merriweather…..drinczyk@gmail.com

    I grew up in Somersworth during the 40s, 50, and left in the early 60s. My family remained there, and I returned to visit many times during the next few years. It seems as though Somersworth has deteriorated a lot since I was growing up. You rarely heard of any serious crime back then, and people took pride in their property. I feel so sad when I visit my old neighborhood. It looks so drab and the streets are empty! If you love living in Somersworth now, you would really have loved in times past. Mine is only the opinion of an occasional visitor, of course.

    Thank you Jenne for sharing and having this here. I grew up in Berwick, Maine just across the bridge from Somersworth. Some of my family still lives in Somersworth and some in Berwick, Maine.

    Sometime I will share with you the stories of my childhood and the fond memories I have of both towns growing up.

    I even met my sweetheart and wife who lived in Somersworth.

    I have lived in Manchester, NH now for 17 years.

    Contact me sometime and I can share some stories with you.

    All the Best
