Tyngsborough was once part of the original Dunstable Township and was first settled by Colonel Jonathan Tyng in 1661. It was named for his mother, Mrs. Edward Tyng, who emigrated from Dunstable, England. The Tyngs were among the early settlers of the land purchased from the Wamisit and Naticook Indians in 1661 for £20 sterling. Tyngsborough broke away from Dunstable and was incorporated as a town on February 23, 1809.
What Tyngsborough is Known for…
As the town grew, Tyngsborough became known for its ferries, quarries, and box companies. Tyngsborough was a vacation community with a large seasonal population until the late 1960s.
Tyngsborough is probably best known for its green painted single-arched iron bridge over the Merrimack. The bridge was built in 1931 as a replacement for an earlier wooden planked structure, becoming the town’s emblem and the major river crossing for Massachusetts and New Hampshire residents.
