Odell is a township in Coös County, New Hampshire, United States. In New Hampshire, locations, grants, townships (which are different from towns), and purchases are unincorporated portions of a county which are not part of any town and have limited self-government (if any, as many are uninhabited). The population was 4 at the 2010 census.[1]


The township takes its name from Richard Odell of Conway, who bought 23,751 acres (96.12 km2) from the state in 1834 for $1,863.[citation needed]


Odell is bounded to the west by Stratford, to the south by Stark, to the east by Dummer and Millsfield, and to the north by Erving's Location and Columbia.

A substantial portion of the state-owned Nash Stream Forest lies within the township. There are three mountains, each having elevations above 3,000 feet (910 m): Muise Mountain, Whitcomb Mountain and Long Mountain, whose two summits are the two highest points in Odell, at 3,661 feet (1,116 m) above sea level each. There are only a few rough roads and no highways here.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the township has a total area of 45.2 square miles (117 km2), of which 44.5 sq mi (115 km2) is land and 0.7 sq mi (1.8 km2), or 1.51%, is water.
