Hopkinton Town Hall is located at 330 Main Street, Hopkinton, NH 03229; phone: 603-746-3170.
Hopkinton was incorporated by an act of the New Hampshire Provincial Legislature on January 10, 1765. There were probably not more than a few hundred people living here at the time. The town's incorporation gave a decided impulse to local, public enterprise. A church was built in 1766. The same year, it was voted to establish two schools. Money was appropriated for building a bridge Coutoocook creek in 1722. A public cemetery was established the same year.
The first selectmen of the incorporated township were Captain Matthew Stanley, Ensign Jonathan Straw and Sergeant Isaac Chandler.
