WikiProject New Hampshire is a WikiProject intended primarily to better foster and improve articles about the U.S. state of New Hampshire with a spirit of cooperation. Live Free or Die!

Requested Deletion Notices[edit]

Articles, templates, images, and redirects having to do with New Hampshire currently up for deletion are usually listed at Wikipedia:WikiProject Deletion sorting/New Hampshire. Note that this only catches articles from Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, but not articles meeting the Criteria for Speedy Deletion, and sometimes misses articles that are Proposed for Deletion. Wikipedia:WikiProject New Hampshire/Article alerts, on the other hand, should catch all of these, and more.

Articles Being Improved By WP:NH[edit]



  • Pinkerton Academy, biggest high school in NH. Produced some notable alumni. Needs to be copyedited, and could use some recent photos.
  • Phillips Exeter Academy, boarding school that has produced many notable alumni.
  • Concord High School, could use another photo, and needs to have more information added. Also could use some more in-line citations in its "History" section.
  • Lin-Wood High School, this article had once been nominated for deletion. Archive of deletion discussion. While the decision then was to keep it, the article could still use some improvements.


State government articles[edit]




Review, Assessment & Statistics[edit]

WikiProject New Hampshire Assessment Guide - rates articles related to this project for quality and importance. This counts as a "collaboration" because it fits in with the Wikipedia:1.0 program. Even if you have no interest in rating articles yourself, it is still worth checking to see which articles need work.


WikiProject New Hampshire is supported by WikiProject United States.


WikiProject New Hampshire has (or had) a subproject focused on the mountains in the state called WikiProject New Hampshire Mountains, but it seems to be inactive now...


Government infobox[edit]

The look of the Government section of the Shrewsbury article is a start for a MA infobox. The infobox used is Template:Infobox Mass Town Govt. It gathers information about the town, county, state, and federal elected officials.

  • Apparently it was deleted in 2008 because it was "abandoned" though... and also simultaneously moved to User:Prezboy1/Infobox_NH_Town_Govt for being "abandoned and redundant"? (Redundant with what, though?)
  • Expand this list.

Categories to which this Project should refer[edit]


Here are some images that were either created by/for this Project, or would just be handy for this Project. Please add more!

Required photos[edit]

For New Hampshire-related articles needing a photograph, use {{Image requested|in=New Hampshire}} in the talk page, which adds the article to Category:Wikipedia requested photographs in New Hampshire. You can help Wikipedia by uploading freely licensed photographs for these articles to Wikimedia Commons.

The Free Image Search Tool may be able to locate suitable images on other web sites.

The Image Existence Checker shows articles in this list that have images.


All towns, cities and unincorporated places in NH have maps, such as the one pictured right, at the Wikimedia Commons at Category:Maps of New Hampshire. The maps are located in the categories for their respective counties.

Each town or city or unincoporated place should have a map image in the {{Infobox City}} template. For Portsmouth, New Hampshire the file would be Image:Rockingham-Portsmouth-NH.png (County-City-NH) The image would be placed in the following fields as shown:

|image_map = Rockingham-Portsmouth-NH.png
|mapsize = 250px
|map_caption = Location in [[Rockingham County, New Hampshire|Rockingham]], [[New Hampshire]]


It's Template:NewHampshire-stub. Its corresponding category is Category:New Hampshire stubs.

The secondary stubs have all been updated with the state emblem featuring the Old Man of the Mountain. Here are what they look like:

Proposing/Using new stubs[edit]

Here is a quick link to the Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Proposals page, so the Stub Sorting people don't get mad and we don't have 3 different versions of the same stub. When new stubs are created they should be updated onto this page for quick reference.
