December 4, 1939 was cold and blustery, but it didn’t chill the spirit of more than 300 people who marched down Lempster Street to the field of Fred Barton - a dairyman, Co-op vice president and a true champion of rural electrication. The new electric cooperative was setting its first utility pole in Mr. Barton’s field and history was in the air. The Manchester Union described the scene:

“Lempster took on holiday appearance today, with family cars, trucks, but not a single horse and wagon in town, a 23-piece band pepping up the scene, the schoolchildren marching down the road, and everyone talking excitedly, like town meeting day was at hand and a partisan fight abrewing...The holiday spirit was everywhere, and one oldtimer yelled for the band to play ‘Roll Out the Barrel,’ but neither the barrel nor the tune was rolled out.”

And so began the spread of electricity to all of New Hampshire’s back roads and farms. What started in Lempster has grown to include 80,000 members in 116 New Hampshire communities. The story of New Hampshire Electric Cooperative and of rural electrication across the country is the story of people getting together to put the power in their hands. We invite you to learn more about it online at See our 70th anniversary section for a comprehensive look at the early years of the Co-op.
