History

In 1834, Moses Cartland founded Clinton Grove Academy, the first Quaker seminary in the state. On September 21, 1938, following several days of heavy rain, the New England Hurricane of 1938 passed through the center of New England. The additional rains from the storm caused the Deering Reservoir dam to breach, releasing a wall of water that rushed down to the Weare Reservoir. Although the dam held, the flash flood broke through the land at the side of the dam, releasing millions of gallons of reservoir water. The raging river, completely out of control, washed away everything in its path, leaving parts of Weare devastated. Many active mills were destroyed in the disaster. In response to the disaster and seasonal flooding, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers built the 2,000-foot-long (610 m) Everett Dam, as part of the Hopkinton-Everett Flood Control Project, which had been authorized by Congress. The overall project was completed in 1963 at a total cost of $21,400,000. The dam required the village of East Weare to be permanently abandoned, and formed Everett Lake. It was also known as "Robie's Town" or "Weare's Town", after Meshech Weare, who served as the town's first clerk and later went on to become New Hampshire's first governor. The original academy served as a private high school. The complex, which included a classroom building, boarding house, barn and sheds, burned in 1872. Classes were then held in the Quaker meetinghouse across the common until 1874, when a new building was completed.
