Perhaps you are visiting our school’s website for the first time and would like to know a little more about our fine town. Did you know that our school is the northernmost school in the whole state of New Hampshire? We are actually one of the largest townships in the United States. If you look at the map above, you will see that everything highlighted in yellow is actually a part of the town of Pittsburg. At one point, our little town even seceded from the Union and became known as The Indian Stream Republic! That’s right! We were an independent country from 1832-1835! If you follow this link, you can find out more about the Indian Stream Republic.
 
We are so large area-wise that back in olden times we had many schools right here in Pittsburg. That was in the days before cars, when students had to walk to school or came to school on horses. We still have some of the older schoolhouses standing here and one, the Indian Stream Schoolhouse, was recently renovated. Every fall the first graders visit that schoolhouse and spend the day there in order to get an idea of what it might have been like to go to school in the olden days. 
 
Though our town takes up a large area, we have a fairly small population. Here in Pittsburg, we sometimes say that there are more deer and moose than there are people! Folks from all over love to travel to our town in order to take advantage of all of the outdoor activities that we are known for such as snowmobiling, hiking, four-wheeling, hunting, fishing, and more.
 
If you would like to know even more about our town and all that it has to offer, please follow
this link to visit our town’s official website. We hope that you might enjoy coming here to visit sometime.
