Deering, NH is a small village located just south of Hillsborough, NH in the beautiful Monadnock region of New Hampshire. A small rural community, Deering has approximately 1,900 people, and is situated in Hillsborough County. The town is approximately 31  square miles in  size and has one state owned road running through it: Route 149.


Deering  was originally part of Cumberland or the Society Land, the portion of  land which had been set aside for the Masonian Proprietors. In 1774,  settlers petitioned Governor John Wentworth, the last provincial  governor of New Hampshire, for township status. The governor granted the  request, giving the town the family name of his wife, Frances Deering  Wentworth. Frances Wentworth's first husband was Theodore Atkinson, son  of Masonian Proprietor Colonel Atkinson. At the time of the Revolution,  the Wentworths left for Nova Scotia, then went to England, where Frances  became a lady-in-waiting to Queen Charlotte, wife of George III.
