New Hampshire’s Tiniest Town Has a Population in the Single Digits
The New England states are among the most densely populated in the country, so you would mostly expect any town there to have a relatively decent-sized population. According to Wikipedia, throughout New England, there are 235 people per square mile on average, which is much higher than the national average of 79.56 people per square mile.
Many cities and towns in New Hampshire are bustling with tons of people. They might even have more than one post office (not to brag)! However, we do have our fair share of teeny tiny towns that are so small that the population doesn't exceed double digits, and in some cases, even single digits!
Hart's Location is the second smallest town in New Hampshire. As of 2018, only 44 people lived there. I've had family reunions bigger than that! If you live in Hart's location, a trip to the store without running into someone you know is actually impossible. The town prides itself on being the very first town in the country to cast votes during the presidential election. That is a pretty cool claim to fame. The town is crossed by the Appalachian trail and home to Crawford Notch State Park.
