Tyngsborough

Col. Tyng named in honor of his mother. He bought it from the native tribe of Wasmit and Naticook for 20 sterling. Which now a days is worth 640,072.50 American dollars. The town was not worth that much money. He got 200 square miles for the money. He had small bloody fights against the natives. In February 23, 1809 it officially became a town breaking away from Dunstable. Until the 1960s Tyngsborough was mainly a vacation spot. The most well known part of Tyngsborough was the bridge. The bridge was made in 1931 to replace a old wooden bridge. A major river went through both Tyngsborough and New Hampshire.
