Derry is a town – not a city – located in Rockingham County, New Hampshire. Despite not being a city, Derry is the fourth-largest municipality in the state and is included on many “Largest Cities of New Hampshire” lists. Home to over 33,000 residents today, Derry is perhaps most well-known for being the birthplace of Alan Shepard and has earned the nickname “Spacetown” as a result. It was also the home of well-known poet Robert Frost, at least for a time, as well as the poet’s dear family.

Though Derry has been settled at least since the turn of the 18th century, it remained a small, unincorporated community until 1827; before then, it was considered a part of nearby Londonderry, and the name is of Irish origin. Derry was the home of the first potato crops planted in the United States, a link to its Irish heritage. During the mid-to-late 19th century Derry experienced a small industrial boom, mainly via textile mills; however, this changed in the 20th century, as the New England textile industry migrated south. Derry relied on its farming to remain economically stable, and after the construction of Interstate 93 through the town the town experienced another small population boom, resulting in 15% growth from 1990 to 2000.

During the summer months, average daily highs usually only reach into the low 80’s, with overnight lows typically dropping into the low-to-mid 50’s. During the winter months is when the weather tends to turn cold; average highs only reach into the low 30’s, while overnight lows tend to drop into the low teens and even single digits, usually after the new year rolls around. Snow is common in the winter months, which can cause delays in auto transport services as well as basic commuting.This can also lead to higher prices and lower carrier availability to and from the town.
