Chickering Road Westmoreland, New Hampshire 03467
Six generations of Chickerings have lived on this farm which is situated on the rich bottom land of the Connecticut River on the New Hampshire side of the river. Timothy Chickering is the family patriarch who moved to Westmoreland, New Hampshire from Dedham, Massachusetts in the early 1760s. He served as a private in the revolutionary army and during the war, he kept and sold cattle for George Washington’s army. From the beginning, the Chickerings have been best known for being cattle dealers; they have had a special knack for being judges of good cattle. Their land holdings have increased significantly with the passage of time; currently, their land holdings consist of approximately 1,110 acres.
